July 1, 2015
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) funded four cooperative agreements from September 2011 through September 2013 called “Infrastructure for Maintaining Primary Care Transformation (IMPaCT): Support for Models of Multisector, State-Level Excellence.”

Each award funded State-level initiatives that had previously demonstrated success in providing a quality improvement (QI) and practice transformation infrastructure for primary care, specifically through the use of a primary care extension model approach. Teams in New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Pennsylvania received the four AHRQ IMPaCT grants.

The purpose of this report is to describe the key efforts and activities of the IMPaCT grants; synthesize lessons learned across the grants about effective approaches to primary care QI capacity-building; and discuss opportunities for future research, sustainability, and expansion.
