New ACTION II partnerships awards
AHRQ announced 17 new Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks II (ACTION II) Partnerships awards. ACTION II is a 5-year task order contract model of practice-based implementation research. Its 17 awardees and their partnerships include a total of over 350 collaborating organizations. Collectively, the partnerships, which span all States, provide access and care to an estimated 50 percent of the U.S. population, representing a broad geographic, demographic, and payer mix for care recipients. The 17 partnerships are composed of diverse organizations involved in health care delivery, including inpatient, ambulatory, and long-term care providers (such as integrated delivery systems and Federally Qualified Health Centers/safety nets); health plans; health services research organizations/networks; consumer and patient safety groups; professional or trade associations/organizations; and quality improvement organizations.
