Impact Case Studies

AHRQ funding is used to develop research, reports, practical tools, and other resources to improve the quality, safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of health care. These resources are being used to make care safer and better for people in communities across the country. AHRQ's Impact Case Studies Program provides evidence of how these efforts impact health care outcomes, quality, cost, use, and access. Each Impact Case Study demonstrates how AHRQ-funded resources are actually being used by State and Federal policy makers, front line clinicians, the health care industry and other professionals.
