Join us for #CuresNOW Delivery Week August 15-19!

Research!America

In the delivery phase, researchers deploy health services research, health economics research and behavioral research to optimize the delivery of health care, help Americans protect and enhance their individual health, ensure that medical advances reach the right patients in the right settings at the right time, minimize medical errors and in other ways work to maximize the value of medical progress to patients and their loved ones. 

We hope the final Cures package expands and improves telehealth; recognizes the importance of health services research to improve the delivery of health care; and makes meaningful, positive changes in the lives of patients.

Without continued support for health research, many of the most promising young scientists, their ideas and a myriad of potentially life-changing scientific breakthroughs will vanish into oblivion.
