Advance-CTR

Tracking and Evaluation Core

The Tracking and Evaluation Core uses a participatory evaluation model to track, evaluate, and report the outcomes and impacts of Advance-CTR's initiatives. 

The Tracking and Evaluation Core evaluates outcomes and impacts of Advance-CTR's awards, services, and trainings by examining 1) the extent to which these initiatives reduce barriers among partner institutions and 2) improvement in innovations in health practice that align with the state and community health priorities.
