Precision Medicine Funding Opportunity Released

Precision Medicine Funding Opportunity Released

The Precision Medicine Initiative (PMI) cohort program has issued a new funding opportunity for healthcare organizations to supplement the recently awarded regional medical centers, and to enable NIH to rapidly enroll the 1 million-person cohort. From the announcement:

This funding opportunity is open to integrated delivery networks (IDNs; defined as formal systems of providers and sites of care that provide both health care services and a health insurance plan to patients in a particular geographic area) and other large regional medical centers. Priority will be given to IDNs that provide an added benefit to the existing consortium through the geographic regions they serve, the diversity of their patient population, their substantial EHR data experience, their capacity, and other key experience and expertise that will allow for a quick start and to complement the current award recipients. [Those] responding to this funding opportunity are expected to have long-standing relationships of trust with their patients and to be able to make available a longitudinal record of care through their EHR.
