Evaluation is a key element of all Shared Care projects. Before starting a local project, project partners must define their measures of success, what data will be collected, and how it will be analyzed.

This rigorous approach to evaluation supports a culture of learning from the experience of every Shared Care initiative and helps ensure the best possible results for ongoing and future projects.

Sharing stories about successful Shared Care initiatives plays a vital role in the diffusion of knowledge process required for supporting broader transformation and improvement of our health care system.

Case studies of selected Shared Care initiatives provide the detailed analysis necessary for understanding the essential elements of successful projects, and support efforts to replicate that success in new locations or contexts.
