Funding for Health Informatics: One Researchers Journey Down the Breaded Path of Funded Research Thomas A. Horan, Ph.D. Claremont Graduate University August 6, 2009
Overview of Journey Focal Areas– The Paths Emergency Response Systems Personal Health Records for Underserved Electronic Systems for Disability Visual Information Systems for Rural Safety
Overview of Journey Focal AreasThe Bread! Emergency Response Systems National Science Foundation HealthATM System for Underserved Blue Shield Foundation Electronic Systems for Disability Social Security Administration Visual Information Systems for Rural Safety US Department of Transportation
Tailoring the Research NSF(NIH)- Strong Intellectual Component, though Broader Impact Matters; Bullet Proof Methodology; look for early access. Started With SGER and led to larger grant. Pattern: No, No, Yes, Yes, No…..Yes? Sample Research: Time-Critical Information Services: The Role of IT in Enhancing Inter-Organizational Cooperation in Delivery of Emergency Response Services
Tailoring the Research Foundations- Strong Social Component, Need for Focus and Deliverables. Started with inquiry letter then full application. Pattern.. No, No, Yes, Yes…. Sample Study: Understanding the Role of Personal Health Records for Health Self-Management in Underserved Communities.
Tailoring the Research Govt Agencies- Need Access Through Procurement Mechanisms. Often Mission Driven Research, High Overhead Adventure. Started with Internships, Cooperative Agreement, IPAs Pattern.. Maybe, Wait, Wait, Yes, Wait, Maybe Sample Study: Case Analysis of Electronic Medical Evidence Transmission Through the National Health Information Network.
Tailoring the Research Private Companies-Needs to relate to their problem space, highly reliant on corporate culture. Started with Practicum, led to small contracts. Pattern: What?, Maybe, Yes, Now! Sample Study: Acceptance of Electronic Disability Evaluation System Among Physicians and Implications for System and Workflow Improvements
Some General Advice Situational Awareness- you, your university, your region Strategy– build to success versus fly high The Proposal – hone, hone, hone and gear to funder The Next Proposal!
