August 22, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

The Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation (IHPI) and the Michigan Program on Value Enhancement (MPrOVE) are aiming to drive team science at Michigan Medicine through the first-ever MPrOVE Research Innovation Challenge.

The new program will provide planning funds for the development of interdisciplinary research projects focused on optimizing value in health care in order to advance quality, reduce costs and improve patient outcomes.

The challenge will start with a kickoff event on Wednesday, Sept. 27 from 12:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. in the NCRC Building 10 dining hall. At the kickoff, faculty with similar interests will be matched up to facilitate brainstorming and generate ideas for potential collaborative research projects.

Project teams will then be encouraged to develop the ideas further and submit a brief proposal to Competition Space by Nov. 3.

The deadline to register for the kickoff event is Friday, Sept. 8 at 5 p.m.
