Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation – Diagnostic Excellence Initiative | Research Funding
The goal of this call is development of innovative clinical quality measures that promote excellence in diagnosis of three categories of disease – acute vascular events, infections and cancer. This is the fourth round of funding for work in clinical quality measure development; this round prioritizes measures intended for use in the MIPS (Merit-based Incentive Payment System) and the MVP (MIPS Value Pathway), and applications that utilize Qualified Clinical Data Registries (QCDRs). However, interested applicants working on other types of quality measures and data sources are still encouraged to apply.
Funding: $250,000 - $500,000
Duration: 18 months
Eligibility: The Foundation is open to receiving and considering proposals from international sites. However, the work must be relevant to the U.S. health care system, and the measures will be assessed based on their ability to be tested and validated on U.S. health center data and implemented in our setting. It is recommended to partner with someone within the U.S. Applicants should have an affiliation with an institution or sponsoring organization, including but not limited to academic institutions, health care delivery systems, medical and clinical specialty societies, patients and patient advocacy groups, medical liability and risk management organizations, independent research organizations, electronic health record vendors, and others with interest and/or expertise relevant to diagnosis measure development.
How to Apply: All applications must be submitted through the online system. A guide for applying, including formatting details, is available here. The full Request for Proposals is available here.
