Exploring the use of routine health data in improving the efficiency of randomised implementation trials

PROJECT STATUS: Ongoing
/
START DATE AND DURATION: January 2022
Summary

Randomised implementation trials evaluate the implementation of evidence-based interventions in routine practice. These trials tend to be expensive and inefficient. Applying routine healthcare data (RHD) in the trial process could potentially facilitate trial efficiency.

However, it is unclear about the role of RHD in randomised implementation trials and its actual contribution to the trial performance. This research aims to explore the use of RHD in randomised implementation trials to assess its usability in improving efficiency and effectiveness, thereby facilitating the uptake of evidence-based interventions into practice.

We will review relevant literature and consult experts in the field. We will survey and interview key stakeholders and carry out in-depth case studies. The key outcome will be a set of recommendations on the best use of RHD in randomised implementation trials.
