We are currently analyzing data we have collected from health care organizations, patients, and medical records for the evaluation. Although our analyses are not yet complete, we want to make our emerging results available to those involved in QI efforts. Below we present summaries of our emerging results, categorized by the main research question they address (see “About the Study”). These findings are preliminary and have not yet been peer reviewed. They cannot be cited or quoted without permission of the author.
