Program Overview and Eligibility:
The ASHRM Research Grant program seeks to stimulate research on healthcare risk management and patient safety issues and supports research projects that are either quantitative or qualitative in nature. Research grants are available for healthcare professionals, or faculty or graduate students at institutions.
The Board of Directors for ASHRM has established the following areas of emphasis:

Patient and Family Engagement
Research proposals related to at least one of the areas above, that support ASHRM’s vision and mission, and involve outcomes research, practice guidelines establishment, or demonstration projects are particularly encouraged.
Awards and Funding:
Awards for Research Grants are up to $100,000 for one-year projects. Projects must be completed within a year of the grant being awarded. The maximum indirect cost rate is 10% of total direct costs, excluding equipment, and must be included in the total $100,000 maximum award.
Call for Proposals: Reducing Health Care Disparities Through Payment and Delivery System Reform
Deadline: April 18, 2014, 3:00 p.m. ET
This call for proposals will fund up to three implementations of paired health care payment and delivery system changes that incorporate a focus on reducing disparities in care and/or outcomes.
The goal of this call for proposals is to develop evidence that payment and delivery system reform designs that attempt to manage extrinsic and intrinsic incentives for overall quality and efficiency, while also explicitly attempting to reduce health care disparities, can produce positive results for each goal.
Our hope is that the knowledge gained through these grants will inform the development of new care delivery and payment models, by demonstrating potential ways to build-in a financially-supported focus on equity. The grants will also inform health care organizations and providers with new practices for developing and implementing disparities interventions within the context of new and emerging payment models.
The program will award up to three grants.
Each grant will be up to $500,000.
Each grant will last up to 3 years.
