Grants to qualified USA agencies, non-profits, and businesses to work with IHEs to update health informatics programs and train health care workers to use medical information technology. A webinar will be held February 23 and March 2 is the the optional deadline to submit a letter of intent.

This funding opportunity is designed for two years. In the first year, 5-7 applicants will receive awards to update the health IT instructional training material that was initially developed under the Curriculum Development Centers Cooperative Agreement.

The grantees will update health IT instructional training materials to include these four key topic areas:
1. Population health,
2. Care coordination,
3. New care delivery and payments models, and
4. Value-based care.

Updated training materials will be publicly available at the end of the program’s period of performance or 24 months from start date.

In the second year, grantees will collectively train approximately 6,000 incumbent health care workers with the updated materials. Once the training material has been updated, grantees will work together to develop one training program that can be used to train staff members in organizations that include, but are not limited to, accountable care organizations, patient centered medical homes, solo practices, group practices, safety net clinics, hospitals, private practices, and health systems. Completion of the training needs to be accomplished within the span of 5 days or less.
