Evaluating System Change to Advance Learning and Take Evidence to Scale (ESCALATES)
Principal investigator: Deborah Cohen
This study will evaluate the R18s funded by AHRQ through RFA-HS-14-008. In this study, we will engage R18 grantees in the overall evaluation by harmonizing measures and working together on data collection and analysis, identify the practice, organization and contextual factors among the combined 2000 practices that are associated with higher and lower levels of deliver of ABCS at baseline (prior to any intervention), identify which intervention strategies implemented by R18 grantees are most effective at improving delivery of ABCS services and practice quality improvement capacity over time and in relation to practice, organization and contextual factors, and identify why some strategies are more effective.
