United States Department of Veterans Affairs
Center of Excellence on Implementing Evidence Based Practice
Our Mission, Our Vision, Our Strategy, Our Partners

The Center’s mission is advancing the science of transforming the healthcare system, both within and outside the VA health care system, to deliver consistently high quality care.

Our vision is to become the leading national resource for studying and disseminating effective approaches to health system improvement.

Our strategy is to partner with managers, clinicians, patients and other investigators in interdisciplinary teams to innovate, conduct research, and drive broad scale adoption of changes to foster health system improvement.

Within this overall mission and vision, our research priorities are :

  • Develop, apply, and spread models of care that are safe, effective;
    relationship-centered, timely, efficient, and equitable;
  • Identify and disseminate effective approaches for organizational change and redesign;
  • Implement, evaluate, and disseminate systems interventions, considering individual;
    relational, and organizational factors, to transform care delivery; and
  • Implement and integrate health informatics into improved work processes and care delivery.
