AMGA Health Services Research
Our focus is implementation research, methods for the uptake, adoption, and integration of evidence-based practices, interventions, and policies into routine health care in clinical, organizational or policy contexts. Implementation research fosters learning across and between disciplines enabling researchers to learn from practitioners and vice versa. By its nature, implementation research fosters innovations that originate at the clinic level in response to real-world challenges.
AMGA Analytic studies combine quantitative data with qualitative data collected from AMGA member organizations. This mixed methods approach helps us uncover and understand the meaning behind the quantitative data and the nuances and reasons driving behavior and process changes.
AMGA is using tried and tested tools from research on implementation to solve complex problems in health care that stand between your clinic and major improvements in patient care that can lead to lower costs.
