ARM abstract acceptance notifications will be sent out in mid-March.

As the world’s largest gathering of users and producers of health services research, the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM) is the preeminent place to share important findings with experts from around the world who can move research into action. This year’s ARM is organized around 21 themes and five submission categories. All individual abstracts and research panel submissions undergo blind peer review. Policy Roundtables and Panels on Critical and Emerging Issues in Health Services Research (HSR) submissions are not blinded.

As always, protecting the health and safety of our attendees is our number one priority. To keep everyone as safe as possible, we will be instating mandatory health and safety protocols throughout the conference. All submitters should be prepared to present in-person. This will be a vaccine-required event. All  attendees and presenters will be asked to show proof of vaccination to enter the conference space.
