We will achieve this mission by developing and rigorously evaluating scalable interventions at the patient, clinician, and system levels that improve:


(1) the responsiveness of healthcare to the multiple and often nuanced goals of patients with advanced illnesses and their families;


(2) the efficiency with which potentially scarce intensive and palliative healthcare services are delivered.

We envision a future healthcare system in which:


Patients with serious illness spend more of their time pursuing life goals outside of health care  settings.


Health system leaders and clinicians have the real-world evidence necessary to implement interventions that  improve patient outcomes.


Payers have high-quality data upon which to base coverage decisions, thereby promoting high-value service provision for patients with serious illness.

We generate high-quality evidence to advance healthcare policies and practices that improve the lives of all people affected by serious illness.
