Abstract

The Health Maintenance Organization Research Network (HMORN), a consortium of 16 healthcare delivery systems with integrated research centers, held their 16(th) annual conference in Austin, Texas from March 21-24, 2010. The conference was hosted by Scott & White Healthcare. Its theme "Emerging Frontiers in Healthcare Research and Delivery" reflected the objective of the conference which was to build synergy among scientists and clinicians to influence the health of the nation; to demonstrate the network's commitment to reach beyond traditional collaborators; discuss tools and technologies; and to expand opportunities for public-private partnerships in cutting-edge healthcare research and delivery. More than 320 researchers and healthcare professionals, representing each of the member HMOs, participated in this conference. Representatives from the AHRQ, CDC, NCI and NIH met with researchers to advance the quality and breadth of public domain research in HMOs. The objective of this article is to provide information about the HMORN and its 16(th) annual conference.
