CERTAIN is Washington State’s learning healthcare system—a network of diverse healthcare stakeholders dedicated to improving healthcare. CERTAIN encompasses a suite of projects and programs that track quality, benchmark best practices, drive improvement, and allow all healthcare stakeholders to have their input heard as to what is needed to improve the system.
CERTAIN is improving healthcare by:
- Continuously evaluating healthcare delivery across the continuum of care: pre-hospital, in-hospital, post-hospital, and long-term care
- Engaging all stakeholder voices in all aspects of the learning healthcare system
- Developing and implementing comparative effectiveness research and evidence-generating healthcare evaluations
- Engaging the healthcare system in constant learning and improvement by moving evidence-based care back into clinical practice
