Accelerating the Use of Evidence-Based Innovation in Health Care Systems
The Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery is contributing to a larger effort led by Elliot S. Fisher, M.D., of The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice. The parent project aims to help accelerate the United States' transition to a higher performing health care system by studying important clinical conditions as factors that influence the uptake and implementation of innovations in health care.
Mayo Clinic researchers are focused on better understanding the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on patient use of health care services, as well as the adoption — by both patients and providers — of innovations in the way health care is delivered. Specifically, researchers are studying the association between area-level deprivation and access to treatment for opioid use disorder during the pandemic.
This collaboration grew out of a previous collaboration between Dartmouth-Hitchcock Health, Mayo Clinic, Denver Health, Intermountain Healthcare, and The Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy and Clinical Practice, called the High Value Healthcare Collaborative.
