Purpose

Development and Translation of Medical Technologies to Reduce Health Disparities (R43/44) will award funding to small business concerns to develop and test medical technologies aimed at reducing disparities in healthcare access and outcomes.

Responsive grant applications must involve a formal collaboration with a healthcare provider or other healthcare organization serving one or more health disparity populations, including rural populations.

Applications must address one or more of the following barriers:

  • Physical Barriers: Factors such as proximity to healthcare facilities and transportation
  • Knowledge Barriers: Health literacy and language barriers can inhibit healthcare delivery, as well as a lack of patient information for the healthcare provider
  • Infrastructure Barriers: Rural hospitals and Community Health Centers may not have the same resources and expertise of large hospitals, and may not be able to afford advanced medical technologies
  • Economic Barriers: Lack of insurance coverage or financial resources
  • Cultural Barriers: Religious beliefs and social customs often deter certain populations from seeking healthcare
Eligibility

Only United States small business concerns (SBCs) are eligible.

Small business concerns that are more than 50% owned by multiple venture capital operating companies, hedge funds, private equity firms, or any combination of these are NOT eligible.

Responsive grant applications must involve a formal collaboration with a healthcare provider or other healthcare organization serving one or more health disparity populations, including rural populations.
