Sharing the evidence, building awareness at AcademyHealth’s Annual Research Meeting

By Elizabeth Zimmermann

At Mayo Clinic, research is integral to everything we do for patients. While seeking to address the world’s most challenging health care problems, our researchers work hand-in-hand with health care providers and other professionals to build the evidence base for practice transformation.

In the Mayo Clinic Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery, we expand this multidisciplinary team science approach beyond the walls of Mayo Clinic, collaborating with groups such as OptumLabs, the High Value Healthcare Collaborative, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Together we seek to improve outcomes, enhance patient experience, and better manage the cost of care; while building and nurturing a healthy care provider workforce.

Part of our charge within the science of health care delivery is to share what we learn, in an effort to accelerate practice transformation for the good of patients everywhere. In addition to publishing in peer-reviewed journals, we present our research at national and international gatherings such as AcademyHealth’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM).

#ARM2017 features Mayo Clinic researchers from across the entire discovery, translation and application continuum of health care delivery research. Activities range from poster presentations to leading discussions, informal ‘Meet the Researcher’ sessions at the center booth, and hosting a special session: Post-Operative Outcomes and Quality Improvement in the Era of Big Data.

If you’re at #ARM2017, June 25-27, 2017, New Orleans, Louisiana, you can check out these events in person. Abstracts and more information are available on the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting agenda website.
