Research & Evaluation

 

As our healthcare system changes, innovative strategies, models and methods of care delivery are evolving. Whether initiatives are focused at a project, program or organizational level, methods of evaluating current status and future results are essential. Using analytical means to measure and document the pathway and worth of an activity, provides one with tangible evidence and supporting rationale with detailed focus.


Evaluation is the cornerstone of assessment, improvement, outcomes and indicators of success. Often, evaluations occur at the closing stages of an initiative in order to evaluate end results. However, proactively planning and incrementally implementing assessment phases will facilitate a more robust approach, will demonstrate effects over time and phases, and will offer the opportunity to tailor efforts along the way. 


Approaches to evaluation are numerous and are fundamentally dependent on your needs and objectives. You will be supported in discovering and defining the best methodology for you and your organization. The evaluation plans include steps such as identification of your goals, literature review, conceptual framework, design, participant sampling, measurement tools, data collection, data analysis, results, information utilization, dissemination of findings and future recommendations.
