CTSI Announces Innovations in Healthcare Delivery Initiative Award Recipients

CTSI Announces Innovations in Healthcare Delivery Initiative Award Recipients

Sponsored by CTSI and Medical College Physicians (MCP), Integrating Research into the Clinical Practice: Innovations in Healthcare Delivery Initiative Grants focus on discovery and the application of scientific findings into real-world settings to improve quality of care, solve complex health related problems, and improve healthcare outcomes.

The fundamental goal of the recent request for applications (RFA) was to stimulate innovative pilot projects and fund the formation of Research Product Lines to solve important clinical concerns. Research Product Lines (RPL) are comprised of a group of clinicians and scientists with complementary expertise who are interested in making improvements to management of a given disease producing a Research Product (RP) that addresses a clinical concern in novel ways through their collaboration. Proposals were reviewed on expertise of team to deliver the research product proposed, potential for broad and sustainable clinical impact, and how the product could improve practice, decrease costs and creatively address the clinical issue.

The 2013 call for applications generated 19 applications, and 7 were funded up to $25,000 each.
