Case Management Insider, July 28, 2015

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has been a big proponent of evidence-based medicine, and recently announced a new initiative to further the cause.

In a blog post on the AHRQ website, Richard Kronick, Ph.D, director of AHRQ, said he recently announced that the agency will pay for the Centers of Excellence to look three times at health systems that are successfully using evidence based practices and also look at how effective evidence-based practices are in changing health outcomes and maximizing resources.
