Reflecting on a recent ARM session, Lessons from COVID-19 for Research on Social Determinants and Racial Disparities, this blog post highlights the potential for conducting more equitable research to improve community health.
Health system issues were featured at last month’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM) with a focus on equity, the impact of new data sources on decision making, and the need to advance the workforce.
Social media platforms are grappling with their role in curbing misinformation and promoting accurate information, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Panelists at last month’s Annual Research Meeting discussed strategies for researchers and health care leaders to combat misinformation.
Several breakout and plenary sessions at the 2021 Annual Research Meeting considered the role of health services research (HSR) in addressing health equity and structural racism, both in the field and in our health care system, particularly as we emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Annual Research Meeting hosted a conversation about the future of AHRQ-funded HSR.
The theme of scientific innovation featured prominently as this year’s Annual Research Meeting. Speakers across panels pointed to opportunities for the field of health services research to better address the needs of decisionmakers.
At the 2021 Annual Research Meeting (ARM), AcademyHealth Board Chair Bruce Landon delivered the Chair’s Address at the “Rock Stars of HSR” session. He highlights three areas of focus for the future including scientific innovation in research, broader and more impactful dissemination, and advances in diversity, equity and inclusion in the field of health services research (HSR).
