Mathematica’s Health Services researchers will be attending AcademyHealth’s Annual Research Meeting (ARM) virtually from July 28 to August 6 to present their latest work on a diverse range of topics, including behavioral health, primary care, women’s health, and uses of data and technology. Mathematica’s experts will participate in a number of live and on-demand sessions throughout the two weeks to showcase their research and discuss the policy implications of their findings.
“Although we won’t be able to meet in person this year, we are excited to have the opportunity to learn virtually about the latest research and exchange ideas with other researchers, academic leaders, policymakers, practitioners, and students about how to advance health policy and practice,” said Erin Taylor, senior vice president and managing director of Health Policy Assessment.
Agenda highlights include the following:
- A discussion of the impacts of the Million Hearts® Cardiovascular Disease Risk Reduction Model by Greg Peterson at the Best of ARM plenary.
- A policy roundtable that includes perspectives from Ann O’Malley on how to strengthen the Medicare physician fee schedule to promote value and quality of care.
- Results on the implementation and costs of the Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic demonstration from Jonathan Brown as part of a session on rethinking crisis care.
