"3T's Road Map to Transform Health Care

"A recent JAMA commentary examines struggles in the U.S. health system to deliver high-quality care and improved health outcomes due to the systematic failure of discoveries to reach patients in a timely fashion. This commentary written by AHRQ authors, Denise Dougherty, Ph.D., and Patrick H. Conway, M.D., propose a new model, The 3T’s Road Map, to transform the U.S. health care system to accelerate the pace at which innovations are implemented in clinical settings by addressing the “how” of health care delivery. This road map is essential to outline the activities, participants, investments, and fundamental shifts required to create and sustain an information-rich and patient-focused health care system that reliably delivers high-quality care."
