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.
A recent literature review revealed most studies of social need interventions were poorly designed, inadequately documented, and inconsistently presented. In this post, Robert Dubois of the National Pharmaceutical Council, an AcademyHealth Organizational Member, outlines the state of the research and provides recommendations to improve study design quality.
In a new report, AcademyHealth and the ABIM Foundation outline opportunities for building a research agenda on trust.
As our health care system continues to rebuild from the COVID-19 crisis and confront the ongoing threats of structural racism and inequality, trust has emerged as a vital issue to explore in efforts to improve the nation’s health and well-being.
AcademyHealth and the ABIM Foundation partner to advance research to improve trust in the U.S. health care system.

Approaches to anti-racist research design, analysis, and dissemination. Session recordings are now available.
Health system issues were featured at last month’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM) with a focus on equity, the impact of new data sources on decision making, and the need to advance the workforce.
New research published in JAMA reveals that Black enrollees were considerably less likely than white enrollees to be treated with medications for opioid use disorder and were less likely to have continuity of such treatment. Results are based on data from the Medicaid Outcomes Distributed Research Network (MODRN), supported by AcademyHealth.
Introspection, Innovation, and Impatience: Paradigm Project Members Speak with the Field at ARM 2021
In a session at the 2021 Annual Research Meeting, Paradigm Project volunteers described innovations to act on diversity, equity, and inclusion, address racial bias in data, and build partnerships with community-based organizations. Panelists shared their lessons learned for building a movement to disrupt the status quo in health services research (HSR) and challenged the field to leverage Paradigm Project practices to spur innovation in order to advance more timely, impactful research.
