Evidence around translation, dissemination and implementation helps the field of health services research move its findings more effectively into policy and practice. This section offers evidence and programs that help research producers better understand the needs of research users, helps place research in context, and test new and innovative approaches to moving knowledge into action.
Food insecurity and higher than average health expenditures are related, but how and to what degree matters when considering policy interventions. This ‘plain language summary’ reviews recent research published in AcademyHealth’s official journal HSR that finds the relationship is both bidirectional and unequal.
The September 2021 Blueprint spotlights the latest report from the Paradigm Project which summarizes an expert meeting exploring academic incentives and rewards, the role of diversity, equity and inclusion in that system, and options for better aligning incentives with health outcomes.
This brief summarizes key points from a May 2021 meeting convened by AcademyHealth as part of the Paradigm Project to explore redesigning academic incentives to prioritize the social impact of health services research. The meeting underscored the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion -- among other factors -- in incentivizing research that has impact.
AcademyHealth Vice President Michael Gluck shares lessons learned over the last two years of the Paradigm Project and reflects on ways these innovations are only the start of our efforts to create real and lasting change in how we do, communicate, and use HSR.
In order for health interventions to be effective, stakeholders must understand the deeply rooted systemic problems responsible for bottlenecks and miscommunications. The final blog in our series on implementation science examines how the study of participatory system dynamics can give implementation teams more insight into the root causes of health system pain points.
User-centered design helps make health interventions more engaging and effective for both patient participants and health care staff. How can implementation teams leverage user-centered design to achieve better outcomes?
Understanding the economic impact of health interventions is critical for developing effective programs that can be replicated in different settings. At the 13th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health, experts shared their top tips about evaluating the economics of a new or existing initiative.
Until recently, there were no preprint servers for medical and health sciences. In this post, Harlan Krumholz and Joseph Ross, co-founders of medRxiv, describe the benefits of preprints and highlight features of their preprint server for health sciences launched in June 2019.
COVID-19 forced virtual implementation strategies into the spotlight. In this blog post, as part of our series highlighting takeaways from the 13th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health, we explore opportunities and challenges of remote implementation facilitation and share best practices for effective engagement during and after the pandemic.
The first in a series highlighting key takeaways from the 13th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health, this post describes best practices for planning, documenting, and evaluating adaptations within complex interventions.
