Hillman Foundation Accepting Proposals for Innovations in Care Program

The mission of the Rita & Alex Hillman Foundation is to improve the lives of patients and their families through nursing-driven innovation. To that end, the foundation cultivates nurse leaders, supports nursing research, and disseminates new models of care that are critical to making the United States healthcare system more patient-centered, accessible, equitable, and affordable.

The foundation is accepting proposals for creative, patient- and family-centered approaches that challenge conventional strategies, improve health outcomes for vulnerable populations, lower costs, and enhance the patient and family caregiver experience. The foundation is particularly interested in the areas of maternal and child health, care of older adults, and chronic illness management. Two grants of up to $600,000 will be awarded in 2016.

Eligible applicants include institutions and care settings from across the spectrum of care, as well as practitioners representing a diverse range of backgrounds.

The foundation will hold informational webinars on February 24 and March 21.

See the Hillman Foundation website for complete program guidelines and application instructions.
