The UCLA Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Southern California Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and the Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (LAC DHS) are again partnering to develop and test interventions to enhance quality, efficiency and patient-centeredness of care provided by the LAC DHS.

The participating CTSIs and the DHS intend to issue two pilot grants of up to $75,000 each for up to one year to support the design and small scale implementation of interventions within DHS that will achieve the goals of quality, efficiency and patient centered care. The DHS will provide additional resources and operational support for the selected projects. 

They are soliciting requests letters of intent that describe ideas for such programs from which formal applications for funding will be selected. LOIs must be submitted by 5pm PST on October 23, 2017. They encourage proposals related to productivity, implementation and improvement, and patient experience. Click here for complete information.
