About the Academy's Expert Panels
Expert panels are one of the major forces within the Academy for developing new knowledge, promoting collaboration, and shaping policy. Fellows leverage their expertise in developing outcomes that provide the critical knowledge, and analysis, summary, and integration for transforming health policy and practice. The Expert Panels advance evidence-based innovations in health care delivery to address the health needs of populations, including diverse, at-risk, and disenfranchised populations. These may take the form of policy proposals, testimony, manuscripts, policy briefs, recommendations, advocacy papers, position statements, and research agendas.
The primary goals of this work are to:
- explore trends and issues important to health care delivery and policy;
- recommend actions to the Board of Directors and the Fellowship;
- support the mission and strategic priorities of the Academy and Board designated priorities; and,
- prepare Board approved and/or requested policy products and documents that reflect the synthesis of philosophic and scientific knowledge aligned with the strategic directions of the Academy.
