David Riley founded the Integrative Medicine Institute (IMI) in 1992 to evaluate the growing healthcare crisis in the United States and inform healthcare decision-making through practice-based research.
- In 1994 the Institute collaborated on the development of three international data collection networks that focused on effectiveness (and adverse events), patient satisfaction, and costs.
- Since 2006 Dr. Riley has consulted in Dubai with the Center for Healthcare Planning and Quality (CPQ) at Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) to set and maintain international best practice standards in healthcare delivery and patient care.
- In 2011 Dr. Riley led the development of the CARE Guidelines—reporting guidelines for case reports that guide the publication of case reports and the systematic collection of data from patient encounters. He consults on projects ranging from case report writing workshops to web-based tools to peer-review and quality assurance.
Dr. Riley is currently involved in projects focusing on case reports, professional education, sustainable models of healthcare delivery in integrative medicine, and publishing in Europe, the Middle East and the United States.
