Associate Professor, Health Services, Policy & Practice, Brown University School of Public Health

Bio: Rosa Baier, MPH is associate professor of practice at Brown. She leads the Center for Long-Term Care Quality & Innovation (Q&I)–the IMPACT Collaboratory’s administrative home–which aims to improve care for older adults by testing and disseminating proven interventions, and has particular strength in post-acute and long-term care settings. Prior to launching Q&I in 2015, she spent 14 years collaborating with healthcare providers and stakeholders to implement and evaluate Medicare quality improvement initiatives. This hands-on experience informs her approach to pragmatic research: combining rigorous methods and evaluation with the flexibility necessary to implement interventions under real-world conditions and constraints. Among her scientific contributions is co-creating the Readiness Assessment for Pragmatic Trials (RAPT) model, which helps trialists assess an intervention when determining whether or not to proceed to a pragmatic trial and how to design that trial. Her research interests also include characterizing nursing centers able to implement interventions successfully.
