A new study from the Healthcare Value Hub asks:
Do we have enough research evidence to address our country’s healthcare value problems?
If not, what are the most important research gaps we need to address?
This first-of-a-kind analysis summarizes interviews with 14 prominent researchers, who universally agreed that there are critical gaps in our knowledge base that prevent us from getting to a system that delivers the right health care, at the right time, at the right price. What’s more, they agreed that we need to be smarter about the types of research we do. After that, there was a wide variety of opinions about where the most important gaps lie, what is needed besides new research and what the best next steps are.
We want to hear from you: Rank the Research Gaps!
