Advance Notice of DHTI RFP 2014

On April 10, the Disruptive Health Technology Institute (DHTI) will announce the 2014 Request for Proposals, kicking off its second round of funding opportunities. DHTI is seeking proposals from CMU faculty directed at addressing pressing issues in health care and improving community health and wellness. Awards are intended to support research that identifies disruptive health care innovations which can be clinically tested and rapidly delivered to a clinical setting or practice in the field. We have identified technical focus areas in which we believe innovation is likely to lead to rapid gains in healthcare quality and affordability: Medical Diagnostics, Transforming Care Delivery, Chronic Disease Management, Computational Health Care, Re-Engineering the Health Care System, and Medical Robotics. DHTI specifically seeks proposals in the technical focus areas listed, but we are open to any proposals that the faculty deems relevant, provided they meet the criteria for leading to measurable, short term impact on healthcare quality and affordability. The deadline for receipt of proposals is May 8. Please visit for information and submission instructions on or after April 10. You may also contact Charlotte Emig at prior to April 10 to answer questions or to obtain guidance.
