The VA Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI) is a national program that partners with VA providers, leaders, and Veterans to scale-up and spread effective practices across the US. QUERI implementation efforts touch all 18 Veterans Integrated Service Networks (VISNs) and helped to inform care improvements for over 5.3 million Veterans.
QUERI’s mission is to improve the health and well-being of Veterans, their families, and their caregivers by rapidly implementing high-impact, evidence-based practices across the VA health system, the largest national integrated health system in the US.
It can take 17 years for scientifically-supported treatments to reach the hands of patients who need them the most. The reasons for this research-to-practice gap are multi-dimensional and may involve complex barriers, such as growing demands and competing priorities across providers and clinics, the difficulty in keeping up with a rapidly expanding body of biomedical research, changing clinical guidelines and recommendations, and the need for new training with the emergence of novel technologies.
QUERI strives to address this research-to-practice gap by matching evidence to solve health care problems, designing innovative strategies and tools to support providers and organizations in overcoming barriers, and continuously evaluating implementation efforts to ensure sustained improvements in care. QUERI’s vision is to become a trusted purveyor of evidence, implementation, evaluation, and quality improvement methods across VA, supporting frontline providers, staff, and sites in deploying effective practices that transform Veteran care.
QUERI funds scientists and clinicians, embedded in the VA health care system, to conduct national implementation and evaluation initiatives that address major health care priorities identified by VA providers, leaders, and Veterans.
