New health information technology funding opportunity on advancing health services through system modeling researchThe Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), in collaboration with the National Science Foundation (NSF), will accept and review investigator-initiated proposals that address systems modeling in health services research. The NSF's Service Enterprise Systems Program in the Civil, Mechanical, and Manufacturing Innovation Division of the Engineering Directorate will be the lead program on this interdisciplinary topic. Through this partnership, AHRQ and NSF look to foster new collaborations among health services researchers and industrial and systems engineers with a specific emphasis on the supportive role of health information technology. Proposals are due by February 15, 2012.
