Research Activities, December 2011, No. 376
AHRQ has awarded four cooperative grants to support model State-level initiatives using primary care extension agents in small- and medium-sized independent primary care practices to assist with redesign and transformation. These "Infrastructure for Maintaining Primary Care Transformation (IMPaCT)—Support for Models of Multi-sector, State-level Excellence" grants are targeted to support four successful, established programs that will serve as models to others. They are:
- HEROs: New Mexico's Health Extension as a Model for Primary Care Transformation (University of New Mexico Health Sciences Center).
- North Carolina IMPaCT: Advancing and Spreading Primary Care Transformation (University of North Carolina).
- PA SPREAD: PA Spreading Primary Care Enhanced Delivery Infrastructure (Pennsylvania State Hershey College of Medicine).
