Building Capacity to Evaluate Interventions for Youth with Child Welfare Involvement at Risk of Homelessness: Phase I and II
Evaluation of the Harlem Children's Zone Healthy Harlem Initiative
The Healthy Harlem initiative is a model for promoting healthy lifestyles in the charter schools, early childhood programs, and afterschool programs operated by the Harlem Children’s Zone® (HCZ). Mathematica's evaluation includes both an implementation/process study and an impact study.
HCIA Evaluations: Primary Care Redesign
Mathematica is evaluating the 14 primary care redesign programs, which operate at different levels (that is, physician practices, hospitals, or health systems). The evaluation team is assessing improvements in the coordination, efficiency, and quality of patient care.
HCIA Evaluations: Behavioral Health/Substance Abuse
Mathematica is evaluating the impacts of projects being implemented by the 10 HCIA awardees focused on mental health and substance abuse services. These awardee demonstrations address a wide array of interventions and target different subgroups within this broad priority population.
