Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Promoting Research on Translation of Evidence into Practice within Academic Medical Health Care Systems

Academic Medical Centers (AMCs) must become translational research leaders by conducting implementation research (IR) within their own health care systems. Doing so will require new paradigms, breaking down silos between research and operations, new incentives, and new funding streams. Steps include CTSA renewal requirements for significant IR and building on the QUERI (Quality Enhancement Research Initiatives) from the VA. These new IR Centers would lead implementation research in key areas that would be conducted within AMC health center systems potentially through CTSA and other funding
