Data QUEST Partners

WWAMI region Practice and Research Network (WPRN)

The WPRN is a collaborative group of over 50 primary care practices in the five-state WWAMI region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho) committed to research and practice improvement. Its mission is to improve the health and well-being of patients in their communities through the conduct of collaborative research that informs and enhances primary care clinical practice. The WPRN’s diversity of geography and practice type allows it to reach many rural and underserved populations. WPRN Data QUEST practices are located in rural and urban Idaho and Washington State.

WPRN Data QUEST clinic characteristics:

  • Community Health Centers and Rural Health Centers
  • Clinics range from <6,000 to 55,000 patient visits/year
  • Clinics are in towns and cities of varying sizes, with populations of <1000 to over 200,000.

DARTNet Institute

The DARTNet Institute is a rapidly growing collaboration of practice-based research networks that are building a national collection of data from electronic health records, claims, and patient-reported outcomes. The networks blend quality improvement, effectiveness, and translational research with a data-driven learning system. The learning system includes advanced performance measures and assistance with the development and deployment of clinical decision support systems. The WPRN is a close collaborator with the DARTNet Institute and can help facilitate research projects across the sister networks to allow for much broader national representation and diversity in populations needed to drive innovative health discovery.
