Expert Meeting to Discuss Emerging Research Priorities
In January 1997, the Center for Organization and Delivery Studies, Agency for Health Policy and Research (AHCPR), held a 2-day meeting of experts to identify central questions
for managed care research. These experts—including physicians, hospital administrators, purchasers, researchers, policy
analysts, and other managed care experts—assisted in identifying research priorities to ensure that funds are used to
produce the information most needed to improve health care.
Four short papers commissioned to stimulate discussion at the expert meeting were revised and published in the
December 1997 issue of HSR: Health Services Research along with an introductory article. This issue can be ordered from
HSR: Health Services Research's Web site (http://www.xnet.com/~hret/hsr.htm).
