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.


Research to Support Timely and Accurate Diagnosis for All

AcademyHealth, supported by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation (GBMF), seeks to engage health services and policy researchers in building evidence to understand and address inequities in the diagnostic journey. The 2024 call for proposals is now closed.

The Impact of State Delivery System Reforms and MCO Contract Provisions on Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Medicaid Enrollee Access to Medications for Opioid Use Disorder

With funding support from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), AcademyHealth’s Evidence-Informed State Health Policy Institute and the University of Pittsburgh will leverage 11 university research partnerships of the Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN) to examine the role of place, providers, plans, and policies in driving racial and ethnic inequities in access to medications for opioid use disorder (MOUD).

The National Interoperability Collaborative

The National Interoperability Collaborative is a new initiative designed to increase collaboration among the sectors that impact health and well-being by improving information-sharing, interoperability, and use of technology.

The Role of Homelessness and Supportive Housing in Health Care Disparities among Adults in Medicaid

With support from the National Institute on Minority Health and Health Disparities (NIMHD), Rutgers University and the University of Pittsburgh, in collaboration with AcademyHealth, aim to examine the potential of permanent supportive housing programs to mitigate health disparities among Medicaid enrollees experiencing homelessness.

Translation and Dissemination Institute

​AcademyHealth’s Translation and Dissemination Institute helps the field of health services research move its findings more effectively into policy and practice. It undertakes activities that enable research producers to better understand the needs of research users, helps place research in context, and serves as an incubator for new and innovative approaches to moving knowledge into action.

Understanding and Supporting Anchor Businesses to Build a Culture of Health

AcademyHealth supports the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s (RWJF) Understanding and Supporting Anchor Businesses to Build a Culture of Health program, which announced five new grants in late 2019. This research will inform RWJF's exploration into the ways that for-profit companies can serve as anchor institutions in their communities to spur greater business action to achieve a Culture of Health in all communities.
