The Patient Engagement Grant Program

Application deadline: November 1, 2023

Coverys is committed to supporting healthcare providers to enhance their culture of safety, reduce risk, and improve patient safety. To evidence this commitment, Coverys, through funding from the Coverys Community Healthcare Foundation, Inc. (CCHF), has established the Patient Engagement Grant Program to support initiatives that are focused on improving patient safety and clinical outcomes and reducing medical professional liability claims. 

Grant opportunity

CCHF has set aside $450,000 toward its 2023 Patient Engagement Grant Program. 

Grant theme and focus

In alignment with a new Coverys Dose of Insight® report, The Importance of Patient Engagement: From Noncompliance to Activation, the CCHF selected improving patient engagement as the theme for this grant program.
Proposed grants must focus on processes to improve patient engagement. The grant review team is looking for proposals with fresh perspectives, data-driven insights, replicable processes, and significant potential to help improve patient outcomes through patient engagement and activation.
