Programs

AcademyHealth programs are led by our expert staff, supported by funding from a variety of partners, and all aimed at improving health and the health system. An alphabetical list of both past and current activities is below. Efforts include learning, translation and dissemination, technical assistance, professional services, as well as stakeholder engagement and community building.

Program

Local Health System Transformation

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's Community Research for Health Equity program, managed by AcademyHealth, supports community-led research to address local health care system issues of importance to communities of color, people with disabilities, LGBTQ+ individuals, and other historically marginalized populations. Local health system transformation needs to elevate community voices and make the priorities of communities the primary goal of local health system transformation efforts.
Program

Managing and Learning from Payment and Delivery System Reform

​From 2012-2015, AcademyHealth worked with nine RWJF payment reform grantees that are implementing innovative payment reform projects to drive high-value health care in their communities. By providing technical assistance and fostering a learning network, AcademyHealth supported their work and informed strategic conversations among these grantees and other RWJF grantees working to implement payment reform.
Program

Medicaid Innovation

Experimentation in the Medicaid program creates an opportunity for states to modify their Medicaid programs to better meet enrollees’ health and social needs. Projects under the Research in Transforming Health and Healthcare Systems program examine Medicaid innovation, through Section 1115 Waivers or managed care organizations.
Program

Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN) Corrections to Community (CtC) Study

Enrolling in Medicaid immediately following incarceration is an important tool to support successful reentry, particularly for individuals with opioid use disorder and other behavioral health conditions. Many states have policies to suspend Medicaid during incarceration and then reactivate upon release, but little is known about how these policies are implemented and how they are coordinated across agencies (Medicaid and Corrections). AcademyHealth's new project is hoping to identify barriers and facilitators related to linking incarcerated individuals to Medicaid to support reactivation and enrollment of benefits.
