The Paradigm Project is a concerted, collaborative effort to increase the relevance, timeliness, quality, and impact of health services research (HSR).

Convened by AcademyHealth and funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the project is ideating and testing new ways to ensure HSR realizes its full potential to improve health and the delivery of health care. The Paradigm Project is designed to push HSR out of its comfort zone—to ask what works now, what doesn’t and what might work in the future.
