Take the Healthcare innovation challenge

Now here's an opportunity: The Department of Health and Human Services is looking for innovations that can provide quality care while reducing costs, and is launching a $1 billion program to do it. Called the Health Care Innovation Challenge from the CMS Innovation Center and underwritten by the Affordable Care Act, the Challenge "will award grants to applicants who will implement the most compelling new ideas to deliver better health, improved care, and lower costs to people enrolled in Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children’s Health Insurance Program, particularly those with the highest health care needs."

With awards ranging from $1 million to $30 million over three years and a goal of identifying new models of workforce development—including the training and education needed to support those new models—CME needs to get in on this one. Deadline to submit a Letter of Intent is December 19, 2011.
