Taressa Fraze is a mixed-methods health services researcher at The Dartmouth Institute. She studies how health care organizations—including leaders, providers, and patients—change their behavior under policy initiatives aimed at improving primary care and how those changes affect patient care. For example, how does a given policy influence an organization’s strategic actions which then changes the way providers offer care within that organization, and thus affects the quality of care patients receive? Within this context, Fraze has several current research projects: How do health care organizations —systems, practices, and hospitals—adopt and spread health care innovations? What strategies to Accountable Care Organizations use to care for complex patients? What types of health care practices and patients participate in the Comprehensive Primary Care Plus model? Prior to joining The Dartmouth Institute, Fraze was an industry-based researcher where she led a complex portfolio of health services research related to health care utilization. She has substantial experience developing and evaluating programs on public reporting of health care quality, individual information acquisition and exchange, and a range of public health behavior change programs. Her PhD (2006) is in health communication with an emphasis in effective message design and a sub-emphasis in research methodology.
