The Targeted Analysis Program supports projects that address questions of high value to both quality leaders and researchers. Projects typically are co-led by a Division of Research scientist and a regional clinical or operational leader. To be eligible, a project must primarily use existing data and must be feasible within 6 months or less with a budget of $36,000 or less. Projects are selected based on a competitive application process. Key selection criteria are the potential to contribute to operational excellence and potential to lead to a research product.
Examples of projects include:
- Blood pressure control: Finding opportunities to reduce disparities
- Pediatric obesity: Weight tracking in a high-risk population
- Electronic nicotine delivery systems: Identification in the electronic health record via natural language processing
