AHRQ ARRA Funding Opps Continue

Yet more big-budget ARRA largesse from AHRQ …

Enhanced Registries for Quality Improvement and Comparative Effectiveness Research (R01)

Application Due Date: March 29, 2010

Total costs of $2-4M per year (yes, million per year) for up to 3 years – total budget cannot exceed $12M
PI must devote a minimum of 20% effort
30-p research narrative

The goal of the FOA is to enhance the electronic clinical capability of an existing registry for two purposes: 1) create and analyze valid data for comparative effectiveness research, and 2) enhance the ability to monitor and advance quality improvement of clinical care. The applicant will clarify the limitations of the existing registry, specify which limitations will be addressed by the proposal, and how the enhanced registry can rapidly and comprehensively address issues aimed at improving quality of care and the comparative effectiveness of clinical interventions. A secondary goal of this FOA is to address issues relevant to the scalability and sustainability of registries that improve quality of care and that can conduct comparative effectiveness research.

Scalable Distributed Research Networks for Comparative Effectiveness Research (R01)

Application Due Date: March 10, 2010

Total costs for a 3-year project cannot exceed $8.31M
PI must devote a minimum of 20% effort
30-p research narrative

The goal of this FOA is to enhance the capability and capacity of electronic health networks designed for distributed research to conduct prospective, comparative effectiveness research on outcomes of clinical interventions. The clinical interventions include, but are not limited to, diagnostics, therapeutics (drugs and biologics), medical devices, behavioral interventions, and surgical procedures used in clinical care.

    It’s too bad the NIH couldn’t think of something to promote long-term research sustainability with all this ARRA money.

    Thankfully (for me) Dept of VA won’t be affected, nor DoD.
    Stupid, the whole thing really. And economistsd say it’s a b-a-d thing to do right now.
