Description: The Partnered Evidence-Based Policy Resource Center (PEPReC) uses rigorous data analysis to evaluate and improve the quality and efficiency of VA healthcare. In this presentation, PEPReC investigators will share their experiences using data from CDW and operations partners to inform the design and roll-out of partnered randomized program evaluations within the VA. Using examples from evaluations of targeted risk mitigation strategies for patients receiving VA opioid prescriptions and of Veteran-Directed Home and Community Based Care, the presenters will highlight ways in which operational data can inform randomized study design.
• Describe the design of randomized evaluations being conducted in partnership with the Office of Mental Health Operations and the Office of Geriatrics and Extended Care
• Describe ways in which data from operations partners can be used to inform power analyses and randomized study designs
