I2O’s research portfolio draws on multidisciplinary methodologies such as observational studies, randomized controlled trials, and big data and machine learning analyses. We use these tools to generate high-quality evidence around health behaviors and health care delivery.
For our health system projects, we often experiment quickly at low cost, scaling once we find high-impact solutions. Most successful innovations differ substantially from where they started; since getting it right the first time is rare, small, quick tests are valuable before system-wide implementation. The iterative and agile methodology we use has four components that alternate between divergent and convergent action. This approach is represented by the double diamond.
