Billings Clinic is included in one of the 17 national health care partnerships chosen by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to initiate innovative projects and research on how to deliver the best health care to all Americans as part of the Accelerating Change and Transformation in Organizations and Networks program.
AHRQ, the lead government agency charged with improving quality, safety, efficiency and effectiveness of health care, has designated The Quality Commons (TQC) partnership to be part of ACTION II with the following collective purpose:
“We will improve the health of Americans by using our collective wisdom, relationships, diverse capabilities and a complexity science framework to solve intractable health care challenges and transform patient care.”
“Participation in AHRQ's ACTION II program will allow Billings Clinic to contribute on a national level in improving American's health through innovative health services research. This is of particular importance now as we try to raise the bar even higher on delivering value and truly improved clinical outcomes,” said Nicholas Wolter, MD and CEO of Billings Clinic.
