Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation: Innovations in Care ProgramDeadline: March 16, 2015
The goal of the Hillman Innovations in Care Program is to advance leading-edge, nursing-driven models of care that will improve the health and health care of vulnerable populations, including the economically disadvantaged, racial and ethnic minorities, LGBQT, the homeless, rural populations, and other groups that encounter barriers to accessing health-care services.
The Foundation is seeking bold, creative, patient- and family-centered approaches that challenge conventional strategies, improve health outcomes, lower costs, and enhance patient and family caregiver experience. The Hillman Foundation specifically seeks proposals that address the healthcare needs of vulnerable populations in the following areas:
- Maternal and Child Health
- Care of the Older Adult
- Chronic Illness Management
The Hillman Innovations in Care grants will consider support for two types of proposals:
- The adaptation of proven, well-established nursing-driven models to new or expanded settings or patient populations.
- The expansion of emerging nursing-driven models with compelling evidence suggesting a strong likelihood for achieving Triple Aim-like outcomes on a broad scale.
Amount: Two grants will be made of up to $600,000 each.
