Abstract Submission & Review

The review process will be coordinated by the editorial team of Nature Medicine. Reviewers will rate abstracts based on scientific merit and potential for impact on healthcare value at scale within 10 years, especially for medically fragile and costly population segments. Examples of fragile and costly patients are those receiving inpatient care, frail seniors seeking to maintain independence at home, or children with chronic illnesses or social health risks.
Submitted abstracts should describe the topical background, methods, results and implications for improving the value of care, and indicate the category in which these should be considered among the six described above. Abstracts can be considered for oral presentations in a maximum of 2 categories.
All authors whose abstracts exceed a threshold score to be determined after review may opt to have their abstract published, via an online appendix, to a report on conference proceedings. This will not be indexed in PubMed but will be available online. Publication of conference proceedings papers in this format do not generally preclude consideration of the full manuscript in other scientific journals, provided the submission provides a substantive extension of results, methodology, application, analysis, conclusions and/or implications over the conference proceedings paper. If figures or any other part of the paper is reproduced from the conference proceedings article, authors must be responsible for securing any necessary rights. The Nature Research policy can be found here:
The 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category will have the opportunity to participate in the session topic Q&A as well as present a poster during the conference.
