As part of the Affordable Care Act, the Health Care Innovation Challenge will award up to $1 billion in grants to fund the best projects that doctors, hospitals, and other innovators propose to deliver high-quality medical care and save money.
In a previous blog, the White House encouraged interested individuals to send innovative ideas and solutions, and submit a proposal for transforming the health care system. This provides the substance abuse community the opportunity to join the conversation and create new innovations for the prevention, treatment and recovery fields. In the application, proposals are encouraged to focus on high cost/high-risk groups including those populations with multiple chronic diseases and/or mental health or substance use issues, poor health status due to socio-economic and environmental factors, multiple medical conditions, high cost individuals, or the frail elderly.
