Ambulatory Safety and Quality Program: Improving Management of Individuals with Complex Healthcare Needs through Health IT (R18): -Purpose. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announces the availability of funds to support the development of health information technology (health IT) that assists clinicians, practices, systems, and patients and families in improving the quality and safety of care delivery for individuals with complex healthcare needs, e.g., multiple chronic diseases, in ambulatory care settings with a particular interest in high risk care transitions. The long-term goal of this effort is to ensure that patients receive the appropriate care and management for the prevention and treatment of priority conditions. Health IT has the potential to deliver evidence-based information to the point-of-care; expand the range and ease of use of potential electronic health record (EHR)-based quality measures; enable new models of care delivery; facilitate high-quality transitions in care settings; and improve the value and quality of health care. While health IT has demonstrated improvement in health care safety and quality in several large health care delivery systems, there has been limited diffusion of systems capable of providing effective decision support into the ambulatory setting, where the majority of health care occurs. -AHRQ is interested in funding projects that investigate novel methods or evaluate existing strategies for supporting both clinician and patient/family use of health IT in ambulatory settings to improve outcomes through more effective decision support or care delivery for patients with complex healthcare needs and those in high risk care transitions. Applicants are encouraged to demonstrate the ability of EHRs and/or personal health records (PHRs) to effectively move evidence-based information to the point of care, including the development and utilization of machine actionable, evidence-based clinical information, and participation of both providers and patients/families in health information exchanges. In particular, examination of the role of workflow and effective use of clinical alerts and reminders, with an emphasis on prevention and chronic illness management, is encouraged. The specific focus of this funding opportunity announcement is on ambulatory settings and the transitions to, from, and among these settings, particularly for individuals with complex healthcare needs. AHRQ also encourages applications focusing on health IT issues associated with Medicaid Money Follows the Person Rebalancing Demonstration grants (see Section 6071 of P.L. 109-171; see also http://www.cms.hhs.gov/DeficitReductionAct/20_MFP.asp)
