NYS Health Announces Funding Opportunity in Its Newest Priority Area, Empowering Health Care Consumers in New York State
The New York State Health Foundation is pleased to launch a Request for Proposals (RFP) for our newest priority area: Empowering Health Care Consumers. Too often the health care system is putting patients last, when they should come first. We want to change that dynamic and increase health care consumers' choice, control, and convenience. Through this RFP, we expect to fund ambitious, large-scale projects or studies that may, as examples: create new tools and resources for consumers; make the health care system easier to navigate; identify effects of consolidation; or address systemic, repeated problems.
Applicants must submit an online inquiry form to be considered for a full proposal invitation. The online inquiry form is now available with a submission deadline of May 17, 2016. Selected organizations will be invited to submit full proposals with a deadline of July 26, 2016. Applicants may be from outside of New York State, but the project or analysis must be specific to New York.
