Funding Opportunity: Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente Research Collaboration Committee Pilot Grant

The Johns Hopkins and Kaiser Permanente Research Collaboration Committee (RCC) is sponsoring joint research applications for 2022.

 

Applications are due by 5pm Eastern Time on January 31, 2022

 

Please read the request for applications for submission information and contact Nancy Ortiz at Nancy.N.Ortiz@kp.org with any issues uploading your application.

The RCC will grant funding for proposals which best represent initial research that leverages the unique capabilities of Kaiser Permanente and Johns Hopkins as learning health systems. Research proposals should align with both organizations’ strategic priorities:

  • Innovations in using Epic® (KP HealthConnect) to improve health care
  • Demonstrating and improving the value of health care services
  • Enhancing the utilization of evidence-based medicine in optimizing care integration and coordination
  • Improving access to care and reducing health disparities

Accepted proposals are granted limited funding (up to $75,000 for 12 months; non-renewable) generally launched as pilot projects to be reviewed for expansion to more complex proposals in the future.  Funded studies will be managed by two co-Principal Investigators (PIs); one from Johns Hopkins, and one from Kaiser Permanente.

The applications are due by 5pm Eastern Time on January 31, 2022.  We expect to announce funding decisions by March 4, 2022. All projects are expected to be completed within the 12-month funding period. Note that the RCC also will assist with coordination with organizational and operational leaders.

For questions,  please contact either Dr. Michael Horberg at Michael.Horberg@kp.org or Dr. Daniel Ford at dford@jhmi.edu
