CHART Phase 2 Awards
Enabling Technologies - Vendor Listing
The Health Policy Commission (HPC), an independent state agency, has launched an exciting program to invest in health care delivery transformation across the Commonwealth; $120M will be invested in community hospitals over the next three years. Through Phase 2 of the HPC’s Community Hospital Acceleration, Revitalization, & Transformation (CHART) Investment Program eligible community hospitals are invited to submit a competitive proposal to the HPC for up to $6M in funding for each hospital. Full CHART Phase 2 Program guidelines are published here.
Where vendors of Enabling Technologies come in: Eligible hospitals are encouraged to incorporate into their Phase 2 proposals “Enabling Technologies” and tools, as appropriate, to improve care, track and monitor implementation of processes and protocols, analyze and produce trending data, and/or support root cause analyses to support achievement of measurable outcomes in their proposals. If you are a vendor of a tool or technology that addresses one or more of the functionalities described below, eligible community hospitals may want to learn about your Enabling Technology as they prepare proposals for CHART Phase 2 funding. CHART Phase 2 prospectuses (letters of intent) from eligible community hospitals are due by July 18, 2014, and full proposals are due by September 12, 2014.
The HPC’s Enabling Technology Listing: The Health Policy Commission will publish a non-exhaustive list of enabling technologies for consideration by eligible community hospitals in CHART Phase 2 proposals. A vendor of an enabling technology may apply to the HPC to have its product(s) considered for listing on the HPC’s website. The HPC in its sole discretion may organize and provide the information to eligible community hospitals for informational purposes only, and reserves the right to amend or reject any proposed submission. The inclusion of or reference to any vendor or product on the HPC Enabling Technology Listing does not convey or imply endorsement by the HPC, and in no way guarantees selection of a particular vendor or product by an eligible community hospital, or subsequent approval for use by the HPC as part of a funded proposal.
