BACKGROUND

Grant funded implementation research is an increasingly critical component of the value ACHP offers its members and the industry at-large. Over the last five years, ACHP has completed two Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) awards, one focused on payer-provider partnership and collaboration and the other on peer-led interventions in mental health. Currently, ACHP is executing three grant-funded projects on topics ranging from maternal health to value-based payment.

As ACHP enters a growth phase of grant-funded research and development, a more strategic and targeted approach to development and execution is required.
