AcademyHealth's Annual Research Meeting (ARM) 2018 -- which will take place in Seattle from Sunday, June 24, through Tuesday, June 26 -- is the premier forum for health services research (HSR), and convenes the foremost experts at the intersection of health, health care, and policy to share important findings and showcase the latest research on how the health system works, what it costs, and how to improve it.
The largest meeting of its kind, the ARM is packed with new research, cutting edge methods, and robust discussions of HSR’s impact on health policy and practice. Join more than 2,500 attendees working together to share and strengthen the evidence needed to inform the decisions that affect the health of individuals and communities.
Visit the ARM 2018 website for a detailed agenda and registration. Stop by our booth, 409, to talk to our staff, and join the conversation on Twitter using #ARM18.

Critical issues related to data quality and missing data are often overlooked in comparative effectiveness research (CER). This session reviews the PCORI Methodology Standards, discusses advances in data science, and examines considerations and best practices for managing datasets and ensuring the integrity of data in CER studies.

Sustaining Partnerships for Patient-Centered Outcomes Research (Podium Session)
9:30 AM - 11:00 AM (PT) | Washington State Convention Center - 605-606
Engaging patients and other stakeholders in the research process, from topic generation through the dissemination and implementation of study results, is a key component of patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR). While effective strategies for patient and stakeholder engagement have emerged at a rapid pace over the past few years, very little has focused on the important and necessary work of sustaining partnerships with patients and stakeholders. This session features a synthesis of approaches for supporting and nurturing researcher-patient/stakeholder partnerships over time identified from PCORI-funded research, PCORI’s Pipeline to Proposal Awards, and the Eugene Washington PCORI Engagement Awards.
Chair and Discussant
- Kristin Carman (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute)
- Julie Kennedy Lesch (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute)
- Courtney Clyatt (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute)
- Lia Hotchkiss (Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute)
Implementing PCOR Results to Inform Choices and Improve Healthcare Delivery (Podium Session)
3:15 PM - 4:45 PM (PT) | Washington State Convention Center - 605-606
Promoting the use and uptake of results is a critical step in fulfilling the promise of Patient Centered Outcomes Research: To improve the quality and relevance of evidence available to better inform health decisions. Two recently completed PCORI-funded studies provide important new evidence about effective strategies for managing and optimizing patient care. This session will feature the results of these studies and the translation, dissemination and implementation efforts PCORI is undertaking to maximize the impact of these and other research findings on healthcare and health. These efforts include the public release of findings from PCORI-funded studies in patient- and clinician-friendly formats, targeted implementation in healthcare settings, and dissemination to targeted audiences. We will also present analyses PCORI has undertaken to quantify the potential economic impact of these interventions if implemented broadly.
