Announcing RWJF’s Health Data for Action Call for Proposals and Informational Webinar

 HCCI is participating in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's signature research program, Health Data for Action, which makes highly valued health datasets available for innovative research projects. Recently, RWJF announced its Call for Proposals and a Nov. 9th webinar to hear from staff at the Foundation, AcademyHealth, and the data experts to learn more about this Call for Proposals.

Health Data for Action: Leveraging Health Data for Actionable Insights (Data Access Award) (HD4A), supported by AcademyHealth, aims to reduce the barriers often faced in accessing data by serving as a conduit between data owners and interested researchers. Through the HD4A Call for Proposals, RWJF will make valuable data from the Health Care Cost Institute, OptumLabs, CareJourney, or athenahealth available to successful applicants (applicants will need to select one of these four datasets).

Join an informational webinar for applicants on Nov. 9 from 1:30-3:00 p.m. ET for an opportunity to ask questions about the Call for Proposals (CFP), the data, and the grantmaking process. Register for the applicant webinar here.

The Call for Proposals application deadline is Dec. 14th, 2018. For more information on the selection criteria and application instructions, visit the RWJF Website or contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
