AHRQ announces new program: Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks

AHRQ has awarded contracts to 15 new partnerships for the Agency's new Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks (ACTION) program, the successor to AHRQ's Integrated Delivery System Research Network (IDSRN). ACTION is a model of field-based research that fosters public-private collaboration in rapid-cycle, applied research. It links many of the Nation's largest healthcare systems with its top health services researchers. AHRQ actively seeks input on research topics for consideration in developing future ACTION projects, and is interested in hearing from organizations that may wish to sponsor, or suggest sponsors, for one or more projects. Please contact the ACTION Program Officer, Cynthia Palmer at
