Dartmouth named health care National Center of Excellence
HANOVER (AP) — Dartmouth College has been awarded $17.5 million over five years to build on its work evaluating the performance of health care systems, identifying waste and offering solutions.
The funding is part of $52 million being awarded by the federal Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, which named Dartmouth one of three National Centers of Excellence to study health care delivery and patient outcomes.
Each center will have a different focus. The Dartmouth group will survey health care organizations and systems across the country to better understand their inner workings, including how they have implemented innovations in medicine, health care delivery and patient engagement.
