System Design Resources
Webinars and research briefs on advanced approaches to planning, executing, analyzing, and reporting delivery system research.
Findings from a set of 10 grants on improving delivery systems and on spreading evidence-based practices through delivery systems; recommendations and methods for advancing delivery system research.
Examples of research, resources, and tools on system design developed with support from AHRQ.
A study team from the Boston University School of Public Health, under a contract with AHRQ, conducted case studies in eight safety-net systems to examine the challenges safety-net hospitals and systems are facing. The team also examined the strategies and resources safety-net systems use to address the challenges of the changing health care environment. Safety-net systems serve low-income, medically vulnerable patients and offer special health care and social services that other hospital systems do not.
