William B. Graham Prize for Health Services Research

Funding Agency:
Association of University Programs in Health Administration

The William B. Graham Prize for Health Services Research was established in 2006 to honor the late William B. Graham, long-time CEO of Baxter International. The Prize is the highest distinction that researchers in the health services field can achieve, and succeeds the Baxter International Foundation Prize for Health Services Research.

The Prize was established to recognize worldwide contributions to the improved health of the public through health services research, particularly research that has a lasting impact on the healthcare system and the way healthcare is delivered. Nominations are actively sought from all parts of the world.

The Health Services Research Prize acknowledges the national or international contributions of health services researchers who apply analytic methods to examine and evaluate the organization, financing, and/or delivery of health services. A single, major research contribution or a careerlong record of achievement may be recognized. The focus of the Prize is on the recognition of a person who has had a significant impact on the health of the public in one of three primary focus areas: Health Services Management, Health Policy Development, and Healthcare Delivery. The Prize has helped these researchers continue their contributions to the field while recognizing their past contributions.

The Prize consists of an individual award of $25,000. In addition, $25,000 will be awarded to a non-profit institution designated by the recipient to support his or her work. It is awarded at the Association of University Programs in Health Administration Annual Meeting.
