Utilizing Health Information Technology to Scale and Spread Successful Practice Models Using Patient-reported Outcomes (R18)
This opportunity provides grants for research to demonstrate how health information technology (HIT) can improve patient-centered health outcomes and quality of care in primary care and other ambulatory settings through the scale and spread of successful, existing health IT-enabled practice models that use Patient-Reported Outcome (PRO) measures to achieve these objectives.
For the purposes of this opportunity, successful models are defined as models that demonstrate measurable impact on factors such as patient and clinician adoption, patient health outcomes, or quality of care. The program intends to support projects that scale and spread existing, successful PRO implementation approaches to additional sites, new settings, or new populations. Applications that propose to develop new PRO measures will not be accepted.
Program objectives, scope, examples, and required activities are listed in the application instructions.
