Bridging the gap between research, practice, and policy.
AcademyHealth Board Member Lucia Savage and CEO Lisa Simpson offer five guiding principles from health services research on ARPA-H’s design.
Previous evidence indicates that people exposed to police brutality are more likely to face mental health challenges like depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder, that Black people and people of color are more likely to experience police brutality, and, that these same populations are more likely to have unmet needs for mental health care. This plain language summary highlights new research from Alang et al. that connects these themes and demonstrates for the first time that exposure to police brutality is itself associated with unmet mental health needs.
2020 AcademyHealth Delivery System Science Fellows reflect on the benefits of the fellowship and lessons learned while being embedded within health systems.
With funding from the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN) members and AcademyHealth conducted key informant interviews with nine states to describe the roles that Medicaid programs have taken to address the opioid epidemic and their policy and operational decisions.
This webinar allowed attendees to listen in on a virtual coffee chat between two noted changemakers: Dr. Don Berwick, President Emeritus and Senior Fellow at the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and Dr. Rebekah Gee, CEO of Healthcare Services at Louisiana State University.
When a safety-net hospital closes or is radically downsized, it is not because the residents have become healthier or the community economically vibrant. How can the facility be transformed to meet both of those goals?
Leveraging data from AcademyHealth’s Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN), new research finds substantial improvements in use of medications for OUD. Improved understanding of the factors driving this increase is crucial to closing remaining treatment gaps.
AcademyHealth was grateful to be invited by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to provide input on how the proposed Advanced Research Projects Agency for Health (ARPA-H) can be designed to reduce health care disparities.
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?
