Robert Wood Johnson Foundation: Integrating Cost-of-Care Conversation Resources into the Clinical Workflow
The Foundation is accepting applications to establish best practices for how tools/resources that support cost-of-care conversations (e.g., cost estimator tools, conversation guides, and financial questions) can be better embedded into the clinical workflow and patient/caregiver “life flow.” Funded studies will thus explore these best practices for workflow integration to ultimately help inform the development and refinement of tools, guides and resources for improving patient and clinician communication around costs and high-value care. Award amount is up to $225,000 for up to 12 months. Application deadline is July 27, 2016, by 3 p.m. EST.
