This “office hours”-style session provided an opportunity for participants to ask questions 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 recent Medicaid policy changes, including those enacted in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this session, staff from the Foundation and AcademyHealth answered questions from potential applicants about the CFP’s focus, the application process, and other dimensions of the funding opportunity. This webinar did not include any presentations; rather, the format was an open Q&A.
