Island Health has residual Health System Redesign funding available for HA-led physician engagement activities planned during this fiscal year. This funding is available as the result of underspending by project teams that have approved funding for this fiscal year. The estimated amount available at this time is approximately $60,000. A firm amount will be known by October 7, which is the deadline for all project teams to submit Q2 physician invoices.
Funding criteria and application form available from firstname.lastname@example.org. Please keep in mind that this funding is for HA-led system redesign (not physician-led redesign or quality improvement), and as usual, MSAs and the Divisions of Family Practice will be given the opportunity to provide feedback on the applications before funding is allocated. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about the funding or related processes.
Deadline to return completed applications: October 7, 2019
Note: Island Health now has confirmed annual funding for the next two fiscal years. Information about the next general call for applications will be released within the next 2-3 weeks. This call will be for physician engagement activity starting April 1, 2020 and onward.
