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.
This month’s edition of The Blueprint takes a closer look at innovative alternatives to peer review in funding decisions such as grant lotteries, includes an interactive tool to assess whether research and policy advances health equity, and describes a new study on why your tweet about your scholarly article probably won’t get many clicks.
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.

The March edition of the Paradigm Project’s newsletter, The Blueprint, continues the Project’s tradition of looking outside of HSR to inspire innovation by highlighting lessons learned from journalists, a scientist who developed a YouTube channel, and a new paper by Dr. Jonathan Grant for AcademyHealth’s Paradigm Project that reviews nine approaches from other fields to incentivizing academic research to bolster social impact, as well as five “provocations” for AcademyHealth to consider.
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.
The Paradigm Project’s newsletter, the Blueprint, kicks off 2021 with a spotlight on four Black women working to improve artificial intelligence, recommendations for research organizations on assessing the societal impact of their work, examples of stakeholder engagement in research, and other news relevant to improving health services research.
AcademyHealth condemns the violent assault on the U.S. Capitol last week. The riotous attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power is a threat to American democracy and an attack on our shared values.
The spread of health misinformation, as seen during the COVID-19 pandemic, undermines trust in the patient-clinician relationship. JAMA Viewpoint authors, including AcademyHealth CEO Dr. Lisa Simpson, consider why misinformation spreads and strategies to address it.
