Call for papers on payment reform

Research Activities, April 2009

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) is calling for original papers on payment reform for a special theme issue of the journal HSR. Experts agree that changing the way providers are paid must be part of the solution to the problems of rising costs, falling access, and uncertain quality in health care, but little comparable evidence has been published to date about the intended and unintended consequences of different approaches. AHRQ, which is partnering with HSR, is especially interested in papers on comparative evidence, but also wants research, evaluations, or policy analysis papers, as well as models, simulations, and theoretical work.

The submission deadline for manuscripts is June 23, 2009, at 5 p.m. PT. The anticipated publication date in print for the HSR theme issue on payment reform is August 2010.
