As the world’s largest gathering of users and producers of health services research, the AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM), set for June 25-27, 2017, is the preeminent place to share important findings with experts from around the world who can move research into action.

Research presented at the meeting stretches beyond the walls of the convention hall through the meeting’s established partnerships with top journals that select abstracts for full manuscript submission consideration in conjunction with the ARM Call for Abstracts.

Most recently, a selection of last year’s ARM research is featured in the current issue of Health Services Research (HSR) with a set of seven articles selected to be outstanding by both reviewers from the ARM themes and HSR editorial staff and reviewers. The articles reflect the range of cutting edge research included at the ARM covering topics from EHR adoption to quality measures to patient safety – all with findings pointing to ways to improve health and the health care system.

The flagship publication of HRET and an official journal of AcademyHealth, HSR is rated as one of the top journals in the fields of health policy and health care sciences and services, publishing the findings of original investigations that expand understanding of the wide-ranging field of health care and help improve the health of individuals and communities. HSR strives to be the preferred forum for health services researchers, managers, policymakers, providers and students to enhance the knowledge and understanding of financing, organization, delivery and outcomes of health services.

From approximately 75 abstracts, the editors of HSR selected 10 and their authors were invited to submit a full manuscript for consideration for publication. The submitted manuscripts went through expedited review, culminating in the following seven articles appearing in the December 2016 issue:
