2010 PCMH Grant Opportunities at CHRP

CHRP is pleased to announce our Special Call for Applications for The Mark Etzel Patient-Centered Medical Home Demonstration Project Research Award. See the Call for Applications for detailed information.

In collaboration with researchers at the University of California San Francisco (UCSF), grant recipients will conduct research that evaluates the effectiveness of Patient-Centered Medical Homes (PCMH) for persons with HIV /AIDS.  The research will examine cost, quality, patient satisfaction, and patient self-management related to organizations and service delivery systems.  Selected organizations will receive funds to support these research activities and to strengthen their capacity to demonstrate a PCMH model for this research project.

This Call for Applications was recommended through the Visioning Change Initiative, a three-year, collaborative, multi-disciplinary statewide planning and decision-making process sponsored by CHRP involving key HIV planners, policymakers, and providers across California. 

CHRP will be hosting a Prospective Applicant Webinar to briefly present the key features of the Call for Applications and answer questions from prospective applicants.
