The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is an agency operating within the Department of Human Health and Services and is responsible for the country's bio-medical and health-related research studies.
The NIH's efforts are mainly focused on obtaining new information to help prevent, detect, diagnose and treat a wide range of diseases and disabilities, all in the hopes of uncovering new knowledge that will lead to a better health for all.
In keeping with its goals and objectives, NIH has recently established a program entitled Economic Studies Ancillary to Completed or Ongoing Health Care Delivery and Financing Pilots, Demonstrations, and Other Experiments.
The goal of the Economic Studies Ancillary to Completed or Ongoing Health Care Delivery and Financing Pilots, Demonstrations, and Other Experiments program is to be able to seek high-quality, health economics research ancillary to large-scale federal and non-federal pilots, demonstrations, other experiments in areas of health care payment, structure, or health care organization that are currently seeking approaches that would reduce costs while simultaneously enhancing quality and outcomes.
As emphasized in the program's official announcement, the types of research that are encouraged may include:
a) Research studies that would boost the scientific yield of completed or ongoing Pilots, Demonstrations, and Other Experiments (PDEs)
b) Research studies that would improve the scientific yield of multi-site PDEs
c) Research studies that would formally test the effect of costs, quality, and patient outcomes of PDEs that have been the subject of less rigorous analyses.
