Opportunities for advancing delivery system research-AHRQ meeting summary now online
Research Activities, July 2011, No. 371
The public and private sectors are experimenting with promising new ways to deliver and pay for care. But rigorous research is needed to identify the most effective approaches, circumstances under which these approaches are most likely to succeed, and requirements for scaling up and spreading the most promising forms of care delivery. To advance research on the design and improvement of the delivery of care, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) recently convened a meeting on "The Challenge and Promise of Delivery System Research."
Participants included recent delivery system grantees, leading Federal officials and health policy experts, and prominent health service researchers, whose research covers areas such as the primary care medical home, care coordination, payment, reporting, and improvement of care quality and efficiency. Authors of commissioned white papers and meeting participants identified and discussed key topics and research methods deserving greater attention by funding agencies and researchers, as well as necessary ingredients for successful spread of promising innovations.
