In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Health Care Systems Research Network (HCSRN) and AcademyHealth have partnered to provide a forum for our communities to directly learn from each other and share information to inform your response to the coronavirus pandemic, with a particular focus on the data, evidence, and information needs of those working in health systems.

We have created a community of practice, open to anyone. It will feature weekly webinars related to COVID-19 research, and a forum for ongoing discussion, document sharing, and posting of the archived webinars. The online forum is powered by Basecamp, and will require a separate login.

Our intent is that this community will become a place where questions can be asked and answered, promising approaches discussed, and new ideas vetted by colleagues outside our own organizations.

How to Participate?

What would you like to learn?  What would you like to contribute?  We invite you to share your specific interest in this new community of practice.
