The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL), a program of Massachusetts Institute of Technology working towards evidence-based policy to reduce poverty, is looking for health care delivery programs that would benefit from data-driven evaluation. Organizations that are chosen would receive the opportunity for technical assistance and funding to develop and implement a randomized evaluation in partnership with J-PAL.

Randomized evaluations, commonly known as randomized controlled trials, are widely viewed as the most rigorous and unbiased method of testing the success of a program, but many organizations do not have the resources or technical capacity to run randomized evaluations on a large enough scale to get useful results.

The purpose of J-PAL’s Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition is to help connect organizations doing innovative work in the area of health care delivery with the resources and technical assistance they need to test their models. Selected applicants will be able to partner with J-PAL to develop and implement their randomized evaluation, and will receive $50,000 in flexible funding from the Laura and John Arnold Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation.

The Camden Coalition has worked with J-PAL since 2014 as part of J-PAL’s US Health Care Delivery Initiative. Researchers from J-PAL are currently helping us to evaluate our model of healthcare hotspotting— time-limited care coordination for frequently-hospitalized patients experiencing multiple chronic medical and social conditions— here in Camden.

To participate in the J-PAL Health Care Delivery Innovation Competition, submit a three to five page letter of interest by June 17, 2016. Winners will be announced July 15.
