Request a Grant Writer

Grants and medical data access to USA and territories organizations for research on a range of topics. Applicants are required to submit a brief proposal prior to submitting a full proposal. Preference will be given to tax-exempt public entities and nonprofit organizations.

HD4A aims to reduce the barriers often faced in accessing rich data by serving as a conduit between data owners and interested researchers. Through this HD4A call for proposals (CFP), RWJF will make valuable data from unique data owners available to researchers.

The purpose of the 2020 HD4A CFP is primarily to award data access at no cost from one of eight anticipated data providers to successful applicants. Most selected projects will not receive a financial award for personnel or other project-related costs. However, limited funding is available for a small number of projects from principal investigators who have not previously received external research funding.

The HD4A program will support innovative research that uses the available data to answer important research questions. Applicants under this CFP will write a proposal for a research study using data from one of the following anticipated data providers including: athenahealth; CareJourney VRDC T-MSIS Research Collaborative; the Center for Improving Value in Health Care (CIVHC); Geisinger; the Health Care Cost Institute (HCCI); HealthShare Exchange (HSX); OCHIN ADVANCE Collaborative; and TransUnion.

Eligible research projects can focus on a variety of topics, including health care utilization and spending; benefit design; quality of care; prescribing patterns and medication adherence; chronic disease; maternal and child care; complex conditions; employer-sponsored insurance; public and private insurance; consolidation; integration, and market competition; social determinants of health and disparities; COVID-19 patient characteristics and outcomes; financial distress; mental health; housing instability; opioid use and treatment; and geographic variation in health.\
