AHRQ grants to improve health care quality through health IT

AHRQ has published an FOA for exploratory and developmental (R21) grants to improve health care quality through health information technology (IT). This FOA supports three types of research studies:
  • Pilot and feasibility or self-contained health IT research projects
  • secondary data analysis of health IT research
  • economic (prospective or retrospective) analyses of a health IT project

The FOA is focused on five research areas of interest: (1) design, (2) implementation, (3) use, (4) impact on outcomes, and (5) measurement, which are critical to supporting health care quality and are considered part of a continuous quality improvement process.
