Transforming Healthcare Quality Through Information Technology (Thqit) Implementation Grants: The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) announces the availability of implementation grants to evaluate the effects of health information technology (HIT) on improving patient safety and quality of healthcare. The objective of this Request for Applications (RFA) is to support organizational and community-wide implementation and diffusion of HIT and to assess the extent to which HIT contributes to measurable and sustainable improvements in patient safety, cost and overall quality of care. Research resulting from this RFA should inform AHRQ, providers, patients, payers, policy makers, and the public about how HIT can be successfully implemented in diverse health care settings and lead to safer and better health for all Americans. Projects presented for consideration under this RFA should comply with the Agencys policy regarding the inclusion of priority populations (http://grants/nih/gov/grants/notice-files/NOT-HS-03-010.html). Further information on the requirements is listed in the special requirements section of this RFA. This RFA is one in a series of solicitations to be issued by AHRQ in FY04 on the use of HIT to improve patient safety and quality of care. The solicitations form an integrated set of activities designed to explore strategies for successful organizational and community-wide planning and implementation of HIT solutions and to demonstrate the value of HIT in patient safety and quality of care. The FY 04 HIT initiative will place particular emphasis on the challenges facing rural and small communities in integrating HIT into their healthcare delivery systems. In addition to this RFA, other grants and contracts to be released as part of this program include: 1. Transforming Healthcare Quality Through Information Technology (THQIT) Planning Grants - a series of planning grants to provide organizations and communities with the resources needed to develop their capacity to compete for AHRQ (and other funding agencies) implementation grants and further develop their HIT capabilities for improving patient safety and quality of care. Planning grants will enable these entities to begin planning and developing their HIT infrastructure and data sharing capacity among clinical provider organizations in their communities. 2. Demonstrating the Value of Health Information Technology - This RFA will focus on the value derived from the adoption and utilization of HIT to improve patient safety, cost, and overall quality of care. This RFA will solicit proposals to elucidate the value of HIT to providers, patients, purchasers, payers, policymakers, and other important stakeholders. Research resulting from this RFA should provide important information on the direct and indirect benefits of HIT and inform decision makers about facilitators and barriers to HIT adoption, including various forms of incentives and disincentives. 3. Health Information Technology Resource Center - The center will provide technical assistance to grantees; serve as a repository for best practice assimilation and diffusion; help develop, maintain and export executable knowledge for clinicians and patients; offer expert HIT support for providers and communities; perform and sponsor educational activities; and develop and disseminate tools to help providers and organizations utilize HIT to improve patient safety and quality of care.
