Description:

Request a Grant Writer

Fellowships of up to $6,500 and in-kind benefits to USA journalists to produce interesting, informative, news projects about healthcare performance. Funding is intended for each fellow to produce a series of stories highlighting a specific topic in the healthcare system, along with its problems and potential improvements, through academic research, interviews, background briefings and site visits. The package can be for a single media platform or multiple platforms.

The project could take several forms. The fellow could choose to evaluate a local health system or a specific local or regional program or an aspect of the national system. An approach might be to compare two health care systems addressing a common problem — access to care for poor and uninsured patients, for example — to see why one community is performing better and why. Fellows pursuing projects such as these would want to consider public data and relevant academic studies in addition to interviews with health care and civic leaders, patients, and others.

Possible topic areas are:
- Efforts to improve patient safety or quality of care or to extend the health care system into underserved communities
- The impact of Accountable Care Organizations on patient care and satisfaction
- How payment structures — shared risk, fee for service, employed clinicians vs. independent contractors — affect health care delivery
- The effectiveness of new approaches to old diseases or evidence-based medicine
- Health system redesign, new technology or other innovations to reduce costs and improve the quality of care
