About Arch Collaborative Case Studies

Arch Collaborative case studies are focused on highlighting success that Collaborative participants achieve with or through healthcare technology. They are meant to briefly advertise member success and act as starting points for ongoing communication and collaboration between member organizations.

Case studies are typically published when (1) a verified outcome is recorded (and often verified through the Collaborative survey) and (2) the approach or steps to achieving that outcome aren’t commonly known and would be helpful to other organizations.

All Collaborative members and participants are invited to submit case studies by working with their KLAS guide.

All case studies can be viewed at: https://klasresearch.com/learningcenter/casestudies
