In 2022, AcademyHealth is celebrating 40 years as the go-to professional organization for health services research (HSR). Our 40th anniversary is much more than a look back. This year we launched a series of interviews conducted by our president and CEO Dr. Lisa Simpson to spotlight new voices and ideas in our field. This month’s interview features Dr. Nasim Afsar. As a health care executive who has led several initiatives to improve quality and safety within health systems and the current Chief Health Officer at Oracle Cerner, Dr. Afsar has a unique perspective on HSR and delivering equitable health care. Watch the full video to hear Dr. Afsar talk about the role of HSR in her career, how to measure equity when integrating health technologies into care delivery, and critical opportunities for HSR in the future.
