AcademyHealth provides information on the latest developments in the field of health services research (HSR). In this section you will find evidence and tools for understanding the HSR literature, making optimal use of existing methods and evaluating and using new methods for research.
Research nominated as the best abstract for each theme from the 2021 Call for Abstracts explores topics related to COVID-19, the impact of Medicaid on access to care, using technology to improve patient experience, and more.
Thinking about how disciplines evolve can help HSR leaders make sense of the forces of change churning in and around the field. The goal should be to make innovation a mainstay in HSR to produce relevant and timely research that improves both health and health care.
In this interactive, members-only event, AcademyHealth staff, Lauren Adams, Director of Communications and Public Relations, and Angel Han, Research Associate, provided practical guidance for delivering effective and engaging virtual presentations.

Informed by discussant interviews, AcademyHealth and NORC collaborators highlight the themes in successful state-based maternal health data linkage initiatives, gaps in implementing such initiatives, and the status of current data linkages to address maternal mortality and severe maternal morbidity.
Research into the way health systems function and affect communities should make a meaningful impact on the lives of the people and places studied. A new paper, commissioned by AcademyHealth’s Paradigm Project, offers new strategies to increase the societal impact that health researchers can have on the communities they study.
Voices of a New Paradigm: The AcademyHealth Paradigm Project is profiling leaders whose work helps point Health Services Research in a new direction. Some are new to HSR, others may just be new to us – leaders in other fields whose work is inspiring or applicable. All are challenging the limits of the current paradigm in ways that help make HSR more effective and have greater impact.
February’s edition of the Blueprint includes an update on the upcoming Paradigm Project expert meetings, articles to improve the methodology, impact, and timeliness of health services research, and resources on diversity, equity, and inclusion.
