The Digital Healthcare Research Program funds research to create actionable findings around “what and how digital healthcare technologies work best” for its key stakeholders: patients, clinicians, and health systems working to improve healthcare quality and safety.

Impact stories highlight completed research that amplify and demonstrate the impact of AHRQ-funded research has on strengthening patient engagement to improve care and shared decision making, supporting clinicians to improve decision making and patients’ care and providing optimal health services to their patients, and improving the delivery of health services at the health systems or organizational level.
