The first project assigned to IPRO is to develop a learning network to provide technical assistance to Medicare-funded Quality Improvement Organizations (QIOs) and associated hospitals on AHRQ tools to improve the quality and safety of health care delivery. The focus will include training QIOs on the implementation of a hospital discharge planning toolkit, developed under AHRQ sponsorship.

"We are delighted to have been chosen by AHRQ to support its evidence-based knowledge transfer effort," said IPRO Chief Executive Officer Theodore O. Will. "Our first activity - supporting Quality Improvement Organizations and hospitals in improving hospital discharge planning - couldn't be more timely," he said, noting recent research indicating that almost 20 percent of Medicare beneficiaries are re-hospitalized within 30 days, at an estimated annual cost of $17.4 billion.

AHRQ is the lead Federal agency charged with improving the quality, safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of health care. AHRQ sponsors and conducts research that provides evidence-based information about health care outcomes, quality, cost, use and access. AHRQ also supports initiatives that disseminate and help move research into practice. This contract is part of AHRQ's Knowledge Transfer/Implementation program, which seeks to accelerate the dissemination and implementation of AHRQ's evidence-based products, tools, and research findings into the health care system. IPRO will be assigned specific projects under this contract.
