April 15 Webinar on Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition

Please join us for a webinar on April 15 at 10 a.m. eastern to discuss J-PAL North America’s new Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition.

This new competition will support U.S. federal, state, and local health agencies and other health care organizations in developing compelling and reliable evidence on the impact of innovative health care programs.

J-PAL North America (the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab at MIT) will provide winners with:

  1. Technical support in developing randomized evaluations to study innovative programs and answer important policy questions;
  2. $50,000 of flexible funding to help design and test the feasibility of these evaluations; and
  3. Partnerships with experienced researchers from J-PAL’s network to implement the evaluations.

Supported by the Laura and John Arnold Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, this initiative is part of J-PAL North America’s Health Care Delivery Competition.  Applicants that partner with a researcher from J-PAL’s network to design a high-quality randomized evaluation can apply for additional funding, typically in the range of $150,000 to $400,000, through the HCDI Request for Proposals. These applicants also may receive support in improving underlying data systems and analyzing and interpreting existing data.  Letters of interest are due June 17.

We hope you can join us for our webinar on April 15 at 10 a.m. eastern. To RSVP, please sign up at this link: https://mit.webex.com/mit/onstage/g.php?MTID=e97435e84f23dd6efc79c1bc2b2632c5a
