AHRQ requests planning ideas for new innovations research portfolio
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, has issued a new Request for Information (RFI) called "Request for Planning Ideas for Development of an AHRQ Innovations Research Portfolio." The RFI can be found at http://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-HS-08-013.html.
The goal of AHRQ's new Innovations Portfolio is to identify and support research that has the potential to accelerate improvements in the organization, delivery, and management of health care. These ideas will be novel and span a diverse array of disciplines.
Research and activities supported under the Innovations Portfolio will reflect ideas substantially different from those already being pursued by AHRQ. Since this is an emerging research area, AHRQ is interested in ideas on specific strategies to foster innovative approaches and programs. Comments and ideas may address new and emerging priority issues and areas that should be the focus of research in the Innovations Portfolio, mechanisms for identifying and engaging partners for this important work, or any related topic.
