This session will highlight the different data sources, data collections strategies, and analyses that can be conducted to inform decision-making about QRIS implementation. Panelists will share findings from Delaware, Georgia and Minnesota and will address topics such as learning what motivates providers to join QRIS, understanding providers’ experiences in QRIS, and developing technical assistance models and strategies that match the needs of QRIS participants. Many of the research strategies can be used with existing administrative data or low-cost data collection. Panelists will offer practical recommendations for how to engage in implementation research activities.
