Description

Join the National Academy of Medicine on January 24, 2019 from 1 - 2:30pm for a webinar to discuss the NAM Special Publication The Future of Health Services Research: Advancing Health Systems Research and Practice in the United States.

Health services research is “the multidisciplinary field of scientific investigation that studies how social factors, financing systems, organizational structures and processes, health technologies, and personal behaviors affect access to health care and the quality and cost of care.” Since the 1960s, health services research has provided the foundation for progress, effectiveness, and value in health care. Ironically, at a time in which appreciation has never been higher for both the need and potential from health services research, the political and financial support for sustenance and growth appear to be weakening. Now is a critical time for the field to articulate its priorities, demonstrate its utility, and transform to meet the needs of a 21st-century health care system.

Join the NAM for a one-and-a-half hour webinar where members of the workshop planning committee and field leaders discuss the state of health services research, why it is so important to improving our health care system, and opportunities for the future.
