Funding Opportunity: Enhance health engagement through patient portal use
The goal of this funding opportunity is to increase individual and family health engagement through the use of patient portals at the clinic level. Grant funding will support a cohort of safety net clinics to fully integrate patient portals into their practices, maximize their use by patients and providers, and foster a culture where individuals conveniently access and act on their health information to engage more fully in their health. To be considered for funding, applicants must meet specific criteria.

Applying for a grant under this funding opportunity involves a two-step process. Specifically:

  1. Interested organizations must first submit a Letter of Intent (LOI) to by Feb. 15, 2015. The form is located here.
  2. Selected organizations will then be invited to submit a full proposal and patient portal work plan by June 15, 2015. These organizations will receive technical assistance and coaching on work plan development and those awarded grants will continue to receive support on the implementation of their plans.

One-year, non-renewable implementation grants will be awarded through this funding opportunity.
