Deadline: 28 March 2017

The Health Foundation, an independent UK based charity, is currently accepting applications for its  Innovating for Improvement Grants to bring about better health and health care for people in the UK.

The Innovating for Improvement programme aims to improve health care delivery and/or the way people manage their own health care through the redesign of processes, practices and services.

Objectives

The aims of this programme are to:

  • Encourage health care services to develop innovative approaches and ideas to improve the quality of UK health care.
  • Build a portfolio of well-described, real-life examples readily available to other health care organisations.
  • Contribute to the evidence base of what can be done to improve quality.
  • Generate solutions for further testing and demonstration at scale in health care.
  • Build the capacity and capability for innovation and quality improvement.

Thematic Areas

Projects that will be considered under this theme could:

  • Use an innovative method of data analysis with existing health care data.
  • Use a novel data source (eg patient generated data) or data linkage.
  • Present existing data or analysis in an innovative way to improve care.
  • Use an existing data analysis technique to inform the development and testing of an innovative intervention.

Funding Information

  • £1.5m available for up to 20 teams to test and develop innovative ideas and approaches to improve health care delivery and/or the way people manage their own health care in the UK.
  • Each project team will receive up to £75,000 of funding to support the implementation and measurement of the project.

Eligibility Criteria

  • The Innovating for Improvement programme is open to applicants from across the UK.
  • Teams need to demonstrate a clearly identified and convincing problem that they want to address, i.e., a significant quality issue that is relevant to UK health care.
  • Teams should demonstrate how their projects will lead to direct benefits or impact on patients within the programme timescale of 15 months, inclusive of a set-up phase of up to 3 months beginning in September 2017.
  • Projects must provide robust evidence to demonstrate that their idea is genuinely innovative and corresponds with one of the following four descriptions of innovation:
    • Descriptor 1: Innovations with no previous history in any context – they are genuinely new or novel
    • Descriptor 2: Innovations transferred into health care from another sector such as another public service body, another industry or non-health related field
