Improving care for older adults by testing & disseminating proven interventions
Q&I partners with innovators – people who may or may not be researchers – who have promising interventions, but are seeking collaboration to establish the evidence base. We both conduct research and expand national capacity through training and infrastructure grants.
Our core strengths are our expertise, big data, and provider networks.
The nature and magnitude of our partnerships with healthcare providers are unparalleled. These partnerships are exemplified by our collaboration with the American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL), including both the LTC Data Cooperative and AHCA/NCAL’s 14,000 members.
Our relationships with providers enable us to remain closely attuned to the real-world conditions and constraints that influence intervention design and testing. We incorporate this knowledge into our design and conduct of research.
