Proactively identify and test interventions that align with provider needs

Moving along a continuum similar to the NIH’s Stage Model for Behavioral Intervention Development, we obtain grant funding to test promising interventions.

Whenever possible, our gold standard involves pragmatic methods: where provider staff, instead of researchers, implement interventions and we evaluate outcomes using existing data. This means we are testing interventions under the real-world conditions in which providers operate and conducting projects as efficiently as possible. 

We use the Readiness Assessment Model for Pragmatic Trials (RAPT) model, which we developed, to engage our partners, continually refining our strategies based on what we learn, and to inform how we prepare for full-scale pragmatic trials.
