New Report: The Story of the EDM Forum

Connect, Collaborate, Communicate: The Story of the EDM Forum traces the story of the EDM Forum, from a group of individual projects in 2010 to a community of more than 4,000 stakeholders, 400 resources and more than 35 collaborative projects. Through a model focused on bringing innovators together, supporting them in priority-setting and collaboration, and enabling them to disseminate their findings to a broad range of audiences, AcademyHealth’s EDM Forum helped shape the next generation of learning health systems.



Paul Wallace Named Executive Editor of eGEMs

AcademyHealth announced Paul Wallace, M.D., as the new executive editor of its peer-reviewed open access journal eGEMs. Wallace is the former Chief Medical Officer at OptumLabs, and current AcademyHealth senior scholar in residence. A national leader in population health research and the use of evidence to improve health care, Wallace was also an early advocate for the use of electronic health data for delivery system transformation.

“eGEMs fills a critical role in the field by providing open access to seminal manuscripts focused on the challenges of implementing new methods, data, and governance needed to build learning health systems,” said Wallace. “I’m honored to be part of this vibrant community of multi-disciplinary experts and authors working to shape the next generation of learning health systems and provided a publishing platform for practical lessons learned not often published in other journals.”


AcademyHealth’s EDM Forum was created through a cooperative agreement from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Grant #U13 HS19564. Ongoing support for the EDM Forum comes from AHRQ Grant #U18 HS022789.
