Webinar: Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems 2021 Applicant Information Session

This webinar provided information about the 2021 call for proposals under the Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems program, a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation grantmaking program managed by AcademyHealth.

Overview


This webinar provided information about a new funding opportunity under the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s  Research in Transforming Health and Health Care Systems (RTHS) program, managed by AcademyHealth. The RTHS program funds rigorous, empirical studies that evaluate or predict the potential effects of policies or policy changes intended to transform health and health care systems.

The new call for proposals (CFP) will support research studies that evaluate or predict the effects of Medicaid policy changes enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including policies in the American Rescue Plan Act. During this webinar, staff from the Foundation and AcademyHealth provided information about the CFP’s focus and the application process, and answered questions from session participants.
