How can research help to improve care and outcomes for older adults? How can academic-industry collaboration evaluate practices, technology, and new ideas to demonstrate efficacy and to translate proven interventions into practice?
Brown’s Center for Long-Term Care Quality & Innovation (Q&I Center) links researchers with providers to test and disseminate interventions to improve care for older adults, particularly those receiving post-acute and long-term care.
We achieve our mission by partnering with innovators (providers, researchers, or others) who have developed transformative strategies to improve quality of care and outcomes. We don't fund research: we work with innovators to seek funding to prove their interventions effective and/or to spread successes widely.
