Research Dissemination

Dissemination of research findings is an important part of the research process, passing on the benefits to other researchers, healthcare providers and systems, vendors, policymakers, patients, and other stakeholders in order to support replication of successful research. This dissemination from the AHRQ Digital Healthcare Research Program is critical to the transfer of successful digital healthcare knowledge, tools, and strategies that improve patient safety, optimize EHR design, reduce provider burden, and engage patients and caregivers. Digital Healthcare Research Program-funded researchers share and disseminate their research findings in several ways that include publishing in peer-reviewed journals, presenting at health- and IT-focused conferences, and during AHRQ web conferences.
