Performance Improvement 2013-2014. How Can HHS Evaluate and Synthesize Multiple Interventions in a Coordinated Evaluation Plan Framework to Inform Policy Change?


This project provided a thought piece about what type of coordinated framework might be developed for evaluating the evidence the Department of Health and Human Services will receive from multiple delivery system reform initiatives planned and underway.

Researchers made recommendations addressing organizational and market variables likely to be associated with quality and cost performance for health care organizations participating in delivery reform initiatives, a review of national and regional data sets and data collection, and a conceptual framework for evaluating multiple delivery system reform initiatives. The project also explored the operational challenges of aggregating disparate information from administrative databases and for collecting additional data from providers.
