Grants to nonprofit organizations in multiple USA states for initiatives and programs to address important healthcare issues. Funding is intended for programs that focus on quality improvement initiatives and patient safety. Proposals from Colorado, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Utah, Oklahoma, and Arizona may receive preference based on the foundation’s existing geographic footprint.

The COPIC Medical Foundation works to improve healthcare outcomes through grant funding of:

  • Programs and initiatives that improve patient safety and quality of care through education and training of health
    care professionals or through systems changes and improvements;
  • Pilot programs that are designed to reduce medical errors; and
  • Development and implementation of checklists and other tools to improve disease management and transitions
    in care. 

The Funding Source values ideas and ways of thinking that are new, novel and original. Priority is placed on concepts and approaches that renew or alter the way something has been done.

2021 Focus Area: Fragmentation Across Care Settings

Modified from ECRI ( As healthcare delivery grows more complex, with multiple provider settings for care delivery and telehealth, care fragmentation is a top patient safety concern because it can impede communication among a patient’s providers and interfere with care coordination.

Breakdowns in care from a fragmented healthcare system can lead to readmissions, missed diagnoses, medication errors, delayed treatment, duplicative testing and procedures, and reduction in quality of care leading to general patient and provider dissatisfaction.

Fragmentation can occur from one provider setting to another, as well as within a healthcare facility from one unit or department to another. Systems-level structures and policies often play a role in reducing or propagating fragmentation and have a role to play in shaping the organizations within the system in how they work together.

Healthcare organizations must collaborate with each other and decide how to transfer information about patients they share. For example, health information technology can help providers share information about their patients. Organizations must devise strategies to “close the loop” and ensure that providers are aware of and address actionable patient information, such as test result.
