HHS Gives $123M to 26 Healthcare Innovation Award Winners

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius announced the 26 recipients of the first Healthcare Innovation awards, which provide government money to healthcare projects that seek to save money and deliver high quality of care for urban and rural communities in need.

"It's yet another way we are supporting local communities now in their efforts to provide better care and lower cost," Sec. Sebelius said in a statement.

The 26 projects receiving funding today split a purse of $122.6 million. Another batch of awardees will be announced in early June.

According to the budgets of each submitted project, HHS estimates that the innovation investments will save more than a quarter of a billion in the long run.

The projects are located in urban or rural areas and include collaborations between hospitals, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, technology innovators, community-based organizations and patient advocacy groups.
