RESEARCH: Takes 17 years to translate to clinical practice

This is a brief interview with Andrew B. Bindman, M.D., the director of the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) about recent threats to the agency’s federal funding and program priorities.  Dr. Bindman mentions that one priority is to shorten the lag time that it takes for research evidence to be disseminated into use in clinical practice.  One approach is a program called EvidenceNOW that provides coaching to primary care physicians in small practices.  Another uses telemedicine and a hub-and-spoke approach to connect specialists and PCPs.  Dr. Bindman also mentions a new Comparative Health System Performance initiative intended to compare the organizational performance of multi-institutional health systems.
