The Health Foundation’s £1.6m Insight Research Programme 2019 invites researchers to submit ideas for research that advances the development and use of data from national clinical audits and patient registries as a mechanism for improving health care quality in the UK.
Information held in national clinical audits and registries can be used to inform improvements in health care quality. However, there is widespread recognition that national clinical audits and registries could be further developed and are essential to understanding the quality of care provided, particularly regarding clinical effectiveness, but also other domains of quality.
Under the Insight Research Programme, the Health Foundation will support four to five projects with funding of between £300,000 and £400,000 for a maximum duration of 4 years.
The priority areas for this call are:
- patient focused audits and registries
- accelerating the use of linked data to support future challenges and trends in quality and care or to improve the value of health care
- demonstrating and enhancing the impact of national clinical audits and registries on practice and policy.
The closing date for receipt of outline proposals is the 16th May 2019.
