Abstract

Interventions to transform the delivery of health and social care are being implemented widely, such as those linked to Accountable Care Organizations in the United States,or to integrated care systems in the UK. Assessing the impact of these health interventions enables healthcare teams to learn and to improve services, and can inform future policy. However, some health care interventions are implemented without high quality evaluation, in ways that require onerous data collection, or may not be evaluated at all.
