The Partnered Evidence-based Policy Resource Center (PEPReC) provides timely, rigorous data analysis to support the development of high-priority policy, planning, and management initiatives. It also coordinates and supports the design and implementation of randomized program evaluations with strong potential to improve the quality and efficiency of VA healthcare. Projects and studies are prioritized by their anticipated impact on VA policy and healthcare system needs, as well as the availability of resources from the operations partner to support the proposed study. Many PEPReC staff members are also affiliated with the Department of Health Law, Policy and Management at the Boston University School of Public Health.

Our Mission

We are a team of health economists, health services and public health researchers, statistical programmers, and policy analysts who engage policymakers to improve Veterans’ lives through evidence-driven innovations using advanced quantitative methods. We aim to clearly communicate our work to relevant stakeholders to promote equitable and efficient access to high-quality physical and mental health care. We are committed to creating a kind, collaborative, and inclusive work culture built around teaching and learning from one another.
