Telehealth Innovation Grant

The advent of COVID-19 has introduced challenges to providing patient care across the healthcare spectrum. As it relates to the mission of the ACI Alliance, the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the need for transformative and innovative approaches to providing care to cochlear implant patients and candidates. In this funding opportunity announcement (FOA), the ACI Alliance seeks to support efforts to obtain data to support attempts to justify financial reimbursement of telehealth for CI-related services by CMS in the future. The ACI Alliance encourages proposals which involve innovative team-based approaches which incorporate elements of diagnosis, programming and/or rehabilitation. The award is intended to facilitate the recipient’s preparation of a more comprehensive individualized research plan suitable for submission to the National Institutes of Health or comparable funding agency.
