Best of the 2015 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting
In this issue of Health Services Research, we are pleased to publish the fourth installment of our featured section, “The Best of the 2015 AcademyHealth Annual Research Meeting (ARM).” We publish annually a set of articles based on abstracts submitted to the ARM and selected to be outstanding by both reviewers from the ARM theme groups and HSR's own editorial staff and reviewers.
HSR has been an official journal of AcademyHealth for many years, and this feature is one of the many successful collaborative efforts to showcase significant work in the field of health services research in a timely manner. Early in 2015, we requested from AcademyHealth staff members the highest scoring abstracts from each of the ARM themes whose author(s) had indicated an interest in “Best of ARM” publication. From the 38 submitted abstracts, the editors of HSR invited 15 authors to submit full manuscripts for consideration for publication. The submitted manuscripts went through expedited review, culminating in the five articles appearing in this issue. Three additional articles from “The Best of the 2015 ARM” were not quite ready for publication in this issue, but they may appear in forthcoming issues of HSR.
