Harvard Pilgrim would like to invite providers in our network to apply for funding through our 2019 Quality Grants Program. Since we established the program nineteen years ago, Harvard Pilgrim has funded over 290 grants totaling more than $20 million in support of improved care delivery and reduced costs. We appreciate the exceptional care you provide to our members, and the Quality Grant Program is a means of rewarding and further supporting that care.
For this year, the program continues to focus on supporting clinical practice transformations, cross-discipline integration, effective care transitions, addressing the opioid crisis, and appropriate use of emergency department visits and reducing readmissions. We also invite applicants to explore alternative methods of chronic pain management, behavioral health integration, and the use of social determinates of health for removing barriers to healthcare — as well as any other innovative pilot programs or projects that reflect your practice’s passion for health care quality.
If you wish to apply for funding through Harvard Pilgrim’s 2019 Quality Grant Program, please submit a completed application to the Network Medical Management team at HPHC_NMM@harvardpilgrim.org by Feb. 15, 2019 at 5 p.m. You may also contact the team using this email address for any project ideas and questions.
The application is available on the Quality Grants Program page in the Medical Management section of Harvard Pilgrim’s Provider website, which is also where you will find an overview of the program, the proposal requirements, details about Harvard Pilgrim’s evaluation process, and example proposal topics.
