The FCC is open for applications under its $200 million CARES Act COVID-19 Telehealth Program, with a promise to distribute the funds quickly. The program is intended to build the nation’s capacity to deliver robust telehealth services by funding telecommunications and broadband services, information services, and internet-connected devices and services.

But the application process has several steps, and the funding is being awarded on a rolling basis until it’s gone – which means that the teaching hospitals, healthcare providers, and local health department leaders who want to access this one-time opportunity will need to navigate several federal systems, in addition to making a compelling case for funding.

Join Chris LaPage, Manager of Research and Consultation at Grants Office and Dr. Hon Pak, Chief Medical Officer at Samsung, for everything you need to know to apply for and win a telehealth grant and a look at some of the most promising telehealth technologies gaining adoption across the country. If you’ve been looking for a way to take your telehealth initiative to the next level, you won’t want to miss this event!

Congress has passed three bills in the past month, appropriating 2.4 trillion dollars to help states and local communities respond to the coronavirus pandemic and alleviate the severe economic distress that has come with it. Among the unemployment insurance benefits and checks to individuals are billions of dollars in grants for healthcare, education, and public safety. And most of these funds are intended to be distributed quickly.

Join the Grants Office team for an (admittedly wonky) analysis of the grant funding included in all three bills. We'll cover the parameters and amounts of new funding that will be available and discuss how these funds will be distributed across the public sector landscape.

As with the stimulus grants of 2008, preparation now can make the difference in getting the funding you need to meet your community's critical needs!

Healthcare providers currently function in an environment where medical inflation and increased financial risk combine to create razor thin operating margins. In order to survive, it is essential for these providers to understand federal funding priorities and effectively target grant money to fill in the gaps. This is especially true when it comes to the increasing transparency in healthcare that is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be securely stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payors, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are researching a cure for cancer, documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.

Today, stakeholders often start collecting large volumes of data for internal use or a specific purpose. Suddenly, a new state law is passed or a federal regulation is put in place that requires such data to quickly be reported and shared in any number of different ways. In order to thrive in such a fluid regulatory and operational environment, these various stakeholders must find a way to fund and plan for agility in an era that demands flexibility.

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at how project-based grants may be used to increase the agility and flexibility of your healthcare data. The session will include a discussion around specific technology solutions and best-practices for building them into a project that is grant-friendly.

CLICK THE LINK TO VIEW THE RECORDING: Now, more than ever, funders are taking the value proposition seriously when it comes to supporting healthcare projects. In the past, funders tended to focus exclusively on improved population health indicators and effective delivery mechanisms. The proliferation of electronic health records, health information exchange, health insurance marketplaces and rising healthcare costs has created an environment where efficiency and value have become primary considerations when it comes to securing grant funding for projects in the health sector. This new normal in healthcare is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payers, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions. 


Registrants will receive a funding report entitled "Grant Funding for Data Center Technology in the Health Sector," which will contain valuable information on all the funding options discussed during the presentation. Participants will also learn about specific data center technologies that can help them with their transformative projects. 

Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at the grants that can fund data center technology in the health sector, on the basis of how it will be used to achieve the 3-Part Aim of improved health status, better health care delivery and reduced costs.
