Evaluation & Tracking

Program Description

The Evaluation and Quality Improvement Program (EQI) within SCTR has been established for the purpose of using evaluation and quality improvement processes to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of clinical and translational research. In addition to collecting, analyzing, synthesizing, and reporting evaluation and quality improvement data, the EQI Program will work closely with SCTR programs to facilitate their use of these data in their scientific efforts. The EQI program’s specific goals are:

  • To work with SCTR personnel to monitor SCTR activities and provide timely feedback to the Program Directors, faculty, and administrators responsible for SCTR to improve quality and increase efficiency.
  • To determine the effectiveness of SCTR in achieving both short and long term goals.
  • To work with SCTR programs and cores to build their capacity for evaluation and quality improvement.
