AHRQ offers 2 new health IT funding grants

HHS' Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is seeking applicants for two new research grants related to health IT.

The first is an exploratory and developmental research grant. It invites applicants to submit project proposals studying how health IT can improve healthcare quality and outcomes, with an emphasis on projects in early and conceptual stages of development. The total funding for a project under this grant is up to $200,000 annually — for a maximum of two years — or $300,000 for the entire project.

The second funding opportunity is a research demonstration grant. It asks applicants to submit collaborative research proposals that use health IT strategies to collect and leverage patient-reported outcome measures in primary and ambulatory care settings. The total funding for a project under this grant is up to $400,000 annually — for a maximum of three years — or $1.2 million for the entire project.

The first grant opportunity expires July 17, 2019, and the second expires Sept. 26, 2019.
