Proposals for DxQI Grants Due March 25th
Don't miss out, SIDM is awarding Grants of up to $50,000 for
QI projects in Diagnostic Quality and Safety. Apply today!
The DxQI Seed Grant Program will support healthcare organizations in efforts to identify, develop, and test interventions to improve diagnostic quality and reducing harm from diagnostic error.
We are seeking proposals to carry out 12-month diagnostic quality and safety improvement projects in care delivery systems. With generous funding from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, each grantee will receive up to $50,000 to support specific quality improvement work directed towards improving diagnosis.
Special Award Areas:
· With the additional support of The John A. Hartford Foundation, SIDM will award an "Age-Friendly Care" DxQI Seed Grant. The awardee will implement a project to improve diagnostic quality and safety for older adults. This work is vital because diagnostic error in older adults is common and errors frequently arise from contributing factors that are unique to this population, including polypharmacy, cognitive issues such as dementia, mobility limitations, and chronic illnesses.
· The Society to Improve Diagnosis (SIDM), Abbott, and the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Program are committed to improving healthcare and ensuring better health outcomes for patients. Through valued collaborations with Abbott, SIDM will award a DxQI Seed Grant project that works across laboratory and clinical teams to improve diagnostic quality and safety for patients, as advocated through the UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Award.
· The UNIVANTS of Healthcare Excellence Award recognizes healthcare teams who work together across disciplines including laboratory medicine/pathology to transform healthcare delivery and ultimately, patient lives. SIDM's DxQI Seed Grant Program and Fellowship in Diagnostic Excellence support the development and implementation of projects that are designed to improve diagnosis and eliminate harm from diagnostic error in vulnerable communities. The result of this collaboration is a DxQI Seed Grant that spotlights the role of laboratory medicine and interdisciplinary collaboration in improving diagnosis.
The DxQI SGP is made possible with generous support from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation.
