Sample Health Care Projects

For a leading national health association:

  • To get perspective on issues of quality improvement and patient safety challenges, TZG conducted more than 50 in-depth interviews with a range of leading experts at health systems/hospitals; quality organizations and agencies; academic institutions; and health plans.
  • Through a national health research foundation, with funding from the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, TGZ conducted focus groups in five states among hospital leaders, physicians, quality officers and nurses to learn about strategies to enhance organizational adoption of practices to improve patient safety.
  • TZG was the principal researcher on a multi-year “Reality Check” public opinion study to understand perceptions of hospitals and the health care system. We conducted over 100 focus groups in 75 communities and 26 states, among hospital nurses, physicians, business leaders and consumers of all ages, races, and income levels.

For one of the nation’s largest, multi-state not-for-profit health systems:

  • As part of a large-scale plan to address system transformation, TZG conducted consumer focus groups in six states to receive direct input about the hospital experience from patients and families.
