The goal of our research is to design, evaluate, and disseminate rehabilitation research to improve shared decision-making. Our aim is to evaluate health care delivery systems to implement value-based care. Our projects focus on neurological conditions, aging, and chronic conditions.Value-based care may be defined differently by varying stakeholders involved in the health system. We incorporate perspectives of all stakeholders. In addition, our projects will generate and synthesize evidence that compare the benefits and harms to prevent, diagnose, treat outcomes and improve health care delivery.
