Hillman Innovations In Care Program: Thank you for your submission

by: Linda Le | Tue, Jun 3, 2014 |

Yesterday, the Rita and Alex Hillman Foundation responded to applicants of the Hillman Innovations in Care program.

We received over 260 highly competitive applications representing a diverse range of institutions from across the country. The Letters of Intent were universally well conceived and inspiring but, with a limited number of grants to award, the final selection process was extremely competitive. In the end, only 22 proposals were chosen to move on to the second-round

Some proposals, for instance, offered creative, compelling ideas, but without sufficient evidence to suggest a likelihood of broader impact, they were difficult to recommend. Other proposals featured interventions that were unique within the context of their own health system or community, but were otherwise relatively conventional. At the end of the day, proposals that most closely matched the criteria laid out in the RFP were the most likely to advance.

In the coming weeks, we will announce a webinar that will discuss some of the common weaknesses among first-round applications and provide guidance for future proposals. We invite your participation.

Thanks again to everyone for their wonderful submissions. We deeply appreciate the considerable time and energy that have put into this effort and truly admire the work that is being done.
