LSU ICON is pleased to announce that funding has been secured for the third round of pilot projects. LSU ICON is available to fund up to 10 pilot project awards, depending on the quality of the project applications and relevance to the priorities of LSU ICON. Each award may be as much as $50,000 (direct costs only), for a maximum duration of one year. The major objective of this program is to provide support to test innovative quality improvement strategies in the LSU Health System and partner hospitals at transitioning sites. These projects may involve the analysis of existing clinical data residing in LSU administrative databases, or collecting new data from patients within the LSU Health System or at partner hospitals. The ultimate aim of all projects must be to improve clinical outcomes and/or cost effectiveness. Awarded pilot projects will have access to services from all LSU ICON Cores to conduct their project.

Letters of Intent are due by September 26, 2013. Full applications are due by November 4, 2013.
