Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation: Clinical Quality Measures to Improve Diagnosis

To align with the foundation’s principles of supporting work that is important, measurable, and impactful, they have identified three categories of disease that comprise the most common and most harmful diagnostic errors, including acute vascular events (such as stroke and myocardial infarction), infections (such as sepsis and pneumonia), and cancer (such as lung cancer and colorectal cancer). Proposals must relate to one or more of these three broad categories.

For this grant opportunity, there must be, at minimum, a proposed measure of diagnostic performance based on obtainable evidence in one or more of the three priority categories listed above. The expected work requires two interlinked activities: 1) development of the rationale for a measure and 2) operationalizing the measure into an algorithm. Prior work in measure development is useful but not required.

The next webinar will be held on Monday, April 12th. Please email diagnosis@moore.org to RSVP.
