The Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute studies the value and role of radiology in evolving health care delivery and payment systems, including quality based approaches to care and the impact of medical imaging on overall health care costs. Neiman Institute research provides a foundation for evidence-based imaging policy to improve patient care and bolster efficient, effective use of health care resources.

Previous Calls for Proposals

SIR Foundation — Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute Cost-effectiveness and Quality Outcomes Research Grant

The SIR Foundation — Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute Cost-effectiveness and Quality Outcomes Research Grant is designed for observational studies and secondary data analyses evaluating the use of image guided minimally invasive therapies in real-world settings. Examples of the types of projects this initiative supports include (but are not limited to), cost modeling studies, decision analyses, case-control studies, retrospective observational studies or secondary analyses of existing data. Prospective clinical trials and prospective hypothesis driven research are not supported by this grant mechanism. Applicants should propose research that advances the field of interventional radiology and evaluates the cost, cost-effectiveness, and quality outcomes of IR interventions. Closed June 30, 2014

 

Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute FY2013 Call for Proposals

The Neiman Institute is interested in funding seed projects in four areas of interest: value of imaging, alternative health care models, imaging and quality, and the economics of practice. We are highly interested in broadening the base of researchers examining the economics of medical imaging and, as such, is particularly interested in funding junior researchers in hopes that Neiman Institute funding may serve as seed grants for pursuing larger research efforts in the future.
