Applications will be evaluated for scientific and technical merit by (an) appropriate Scientific Review Group, in accordance with AHRQ review policy and procedures, using the stated review criteria. Assignment to a Scientific Review Group will be shown in the eRA Commons.
Applications will be assigned on the basis of established AHRQ referral guidelines to the appropriate AHRQ Office or Center. Applications will compete for available funds with all other recommended applications submitted in response to this FOA. The following will be considered in making funding decisions:
However, as practiced today, risk communications is often earnest but surprisingly ad hoc. One reason is that the risk communication research literature is large and diverse and the norms of academic research make it inaccessible to outsiders looking for practical and proven methods and tools.
7. DSS Functionality . methods, tools, and techniques for developing thefunctional aspects of enhanced decision making solver, model, and/or data management in DSSs rule formulation and management in DSSs DSS development and use in computer supported cooperative work, negotiation, research and product.
Part I - Excel Essentials: This part presents an overview of Excel’s basic and extended functionalities. The basic functionality topics include referencing and names, functions and formulas, charts, and pivot tables. The extended functionality topics include statistical analysis, the Solver and modeling, simulation, and working with large datasets.
These projects are authorized by 97 . 799a, which provides that AHRQ shall conduct and support research, support demonstration projects, and disseminate information on health care and on systems for the delivery of such care, including activities with respect to the quality, effectiveness, efficiency, appropriateness, and value of health care services.
This FOA focuses on scaling well-established, effective CDS to additional sites and on demonstrating its positive effect. For the purposes of this FOA, additional sites are defined as sites outside the department that originally developed the CDS, as new types of settings (., inpatient vs. outpatient), or as new systems (., CDS on one electronic health record (EHR) vs. another EHR).
AHRQ is not using the Modular Grant Application and Award Process. Applicants for funding from AHRQ should ignore application instructions concerning the Modular Grant Application and Award Process, and prepare applications using instructions for the Research and Related Budget Components of the SF 979 (R&R). Applications submitted in the Modular format will not be reviewed.
Efforts are currently underway to harmonize CDS standards with standards for electronic clinical quality measures (eCQMs). Harmonized CDS and quality measurement standards would ideally make for more efficient and more consistently implemented health IT designed to drive quality improvement (ONC, 7569). Common CDS and eCQM standards for metadata, a data model (., Quality Improvement and Clinical Knowledge or QUICK), and an expression language (., Clinical Quality Language or CQL) are being developed through Health Level 7 (HL7) and the Clinical Quality Framework (CQF) Initiative ( http:// ).
The total costs (direct and indirect) for a project awarded under this FOA will not exceed $955,555 in any given year or $ million for the entire project period.
PCOR is comparative clinical effectiveness research of the impact on health outcomes of two or more preventive, diagnostic, treatment, or health care delivery approaches. This definition is based on section 6856(a) of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 7565. PCOR produces not only clinical findings (., diuretics are superior to angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and biologic agents in the management of patients with Crohn's disease), but also evidence about the effectiveness of health care delivery. Examples of PCOR findings can be found in, but are not limited to, the following places:
