Letter of Intent Deadline: Monday, October 31, 2022 by 5:00 PM EST
Full Application Deadline: Monday, November 28th, 2022 by 5:00 PM EST

The UF CTSI Learning Health System Program is pleased to invite applications for Translational Pilot Awards that use a “learning health system” approach to align research and clinical operations to improve health outcomes and advance health equity using informatics, stakeholder engagement, implementation science and other methodologies to address priority areas at UF Health (see below). The Translational Pilot Program is supported in part by the UF-FSU CTSA Award funded through the NIH National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences.

For the 2023-24 cycle, the LHS Program is seeking to fund projects that focus on reducing hospital readmissions, specifically neurologic and surgical readmissions. Reducing preventable readmissions is an important step to reducing costs and improving quality of care and is a nationally recognized priority.  Applications that incorporate telehealth, community-informed models of care, and team-based care either used alone or in combination with other methods to reduce hospital readmissions are of particular interest.  

A total of up to $250,000 is available for projects to be funded in the 2023-24 cycle, depending on the quality of the proposals and the availability of funds. Three types of twelve-month pilot awards are available to project teams:

  • (1) High Impact awards up to $100,000
  • (2) LHS Translational Pilot awards up to $50,000
  • (3) Engagement awards up to $25,000

All submissions must be submitted to REDCap by the posted deadlines. Please review the RFA Announcement and application instructions for further details on how to submit your application.
