2017 Vision for the ISRN

Success of the Improvement Science Research Network (ISRN) is built on a shared vision which takes into account the unique knowledge needs in healthcare delivery science across our wide array of vested stakeholders. 

Along with the ISRN Mission and national consensus on research priorities, the 2017 Vision guides the actions of ISRN associates, Steering Council, and research collaboratives to continue the ISRN’s progress as a mainstay in improvement science. Using the 2017 Vision, the ISRN is poised to continue our collective success in conducting rapid, rigorous, and relevant research studies that address the National Quality Strategy aims: Better care, healthy people, and affordable care

During the past year, ISRN associates and ISRN Steering Council members examined our first Vision (established in 2010) in today’s context and offered this revitalized 2017 Vision to reflect our preferred future for the next 3 years. Presented below is our 2017 Vision organized into 5 major categories with benchmarks identified for each category.
