In 2002, Research Circle Associates was formed to make research enterprise more effective and efficient through business process re-engineering and state of the art technology. Our researchers found that computerized screening products with built-in brief interventions could improve patient disclosure of risk behaviors and dramatically enhance the healthcare system’s capacity to deliver prevention/intervention to a broad spectrum of patients.
