AHRQ’s Impact Case Studies Program catalogues the impact the Agency’s research and resources have on outcomes, quality, cost, use, and access. They demonstrate how AHRQ-funded research, tools, and products are actually being used by Federal and State Government; individual practices, clinics, and hospitals; insurance companies; professional associations; and schools of public health and medicine.
