The Collaborative for Accountability and Improvement consists of internationally known thought leaders and organizations dedicated to bringing CRPs to scale in the U.S. and beyond.
The Collaborative for Accountability and Improvement is a network of the physicians, attorneys, and insurers who pioneered the earliest CRPs in the United States. It is our belief that CRPs are an essential strategy for preventing medical errors and cultivating high-quality, patient-centered healthcare. Our mission is to radically accelerate the adoption of CRPs nationally and internationally, particularly through education, training, and hands-on support. We are housed at the University of Washington.
In addition to education and training, we are committed to creating policy environments that support CRPs. We help healthcare institutions create and implement model policies to support the CRP process. We educate regulators and licensors on the goals of CRPs and how to create policies that support their spread at the state level. We are currently conducting cooperative projects with state medical boards and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop and evaluate new regulatory processes that will encourage CRP implementation.
