The Conference

Thank you to everyone who attended our inaugural conference! We aimed to gather researchers with a wide range of LHS interests for presentations, discussions, workshops, and opportunities for networking. From evidence synthesis to pragmatic clinical trials to data-driven discovery and health IT implementation, the conference addressed some of the most pressing and emerging LHS topics. It also highlighted LHS best practices and lessons learned and promoted discussion while expanding the reach and diversity of the LHS community.

The two-day conference featured keynotes representing health services researchers, administrators, payers, and patient representatives, as well as a convening of expertise and insight on LHS topics ranging from real world data and implementation science to patient and community engagement. The educational content of this conference was be eligible for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit TM and ACPE Contact Hours - learn more on the continuing professional development website.
