R4R Innovation Challenge Awards
The 2012 Challenge sought and awarded submissions in four topic areas:
- Innovative initiatives that serve the chronically ill in the post-acute setting
- Coordinated primary care delivery systems that incorporate the AMC and community based-affiliates, and that have resulted in quality and cost improvements for individuals
- Redesign of care for specific medical conditions incorporating outcomes improvement
- Innovations in GME training that advance quality and patient safety, population health management, and/or interprofessional team approaches to care
The 2011 and 2012 Innovation Challenge proposals can be viewed in the AAMC's iCollaborative, an online portal for sharing innovations in health care delivery, education and research.
