AcademyHealth works with public and private-sector organizations to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between the health services research and policy worlds. For example, under contract to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality's (AHRQ) Knowledge Transfer Program, we work with health care providers, purchasers, health plans, and state and local government leaders to help them understand and apply health services research findings in their decision-making.
AcademyHealth synthesizes health reform experiences
of more than 30 states and provides technical assistance to grantees for
the Health Resources and Services Administrations
State Planning Grants program.
AcademyHealth also sponsors periodic briefings to educate media, Congress, and other stakeholders on important health services research and policy issues.
