Center for Innovation to Implementation (Ci2i)
Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) QUERI: The mission of CHF QUERI Center is to efficiently improve survival and quality of life for all VA patients with heart failure through collaboration with other VA organizations to implement best practices. We believe the best way to achieve this mission is through increasing use of care known to prolong survival and quality of life and reducing unnecessary care.
Health Economics Resource Center (HERC): HERC is a national center located in Menlo Park, CA that assists VA researchers in assessing the cost-effectiveness of medical care, evaluating the efficiency of VA programs and providers, and conducting high-quality health economics research.
Health Services Research & Development (HSR&D): HSR&D pursues research that underscores all aspects of VA healthcare: patient care, care delivery, health outcomes, cost, and quality. HSR&D research also addresses critical issues for Veterans returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan with conditions that may require care over their lifetimes. Within VA HSR&D, researchers focus on identifying and evaluating innovative strategies that lead to accessible, high quality, cost-effective care for Veterans and the nation.
