Donaghue Foundation Supports Greater Value Portfolio

  Grant Amount: $400,000 per award

Information

In 2021, the Donaghue Foundation’s Greater Value Portfolio grant program will fund research projects for two years with a maximum amount of $400,000 per award for the purpose of advancing promising approaches to achieve a higher value healthcare system. The goal of this program is to test approaches and tools that organizations can readily use to improve the value of the healthcare they provide to their patients and communities.

Investigators conducting research to develop actionable solutions to one or more of these symptoms of low value healthcare are encouraged to apply to the Greater Value Portfolio program:

  • High and rising healthcare costs
  • Unwarranted variation in prices,
  • Racial and ethnic disparities in access, prices and outcomes
  • Unaffordable cost of care burden on patients and families
  • Unacceptable variation in quality
  • Lack of transparency in both price and outcomes

Investigators conducting research to develop actionable solutions to one or more of these symptoms of low value healthcare are encouraged to apply to the Greater Value Portfolio program.
