Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks II

ACTION II is a model of field-based research designed to promote innovation in health care delivery by accelerating the diffusion of research into practice. The ACTION II network includes 17 large partnerships and more than 350 collaborating organizations that provide health care to an estimated 50 percent of the U.S. population.

Mission

ACTION II promotes and accelerates the development, implementation, dissemination, and sustainability of innovations in health care delivery to increase understanding of how to incorporate evidence-based improvements into routine practice to improve quality of care.

Objectives

ACTION II Partnerships conduct practice-based implementation research focused on achieving one or more of the following four objectives:

  • To test or expand the investigation of innovations that are new to the health care field (proofs of concept).
  • To implement, in additional settings, interventions or improvement approaches that have been demonstrated to work in a limited type or number of settings.
  • To spread, or take to scale, one or more proven innovations or delivery system improvements.
  • To evaluate and support sustainability.
