This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) invites R01 grant applications for funding health services research that improves the quality of care and patient outcomes during transitions of care. The purpose of this FOA is to support large-scale research projects that rigorously test promising interventions aimed at improving communication and coordination during care transitions.
This FOA is focused on three research areas of interest.
- Care transitions between primary care, acute care, and specialty providers
- Care transitions between different institutional care settings
- Care transitions with a focus on patients, their families and communities
