Annual Request for Application (RFA)
– Innovation Projects RFA 2023

Applications can be submitted via Blackbaud starting Wednesday, March 1st, 2023 and must be received by 11:59PM Sunday, April 16th, 2023.

The Emory Healthcare Innovation Team is pleased to announce the inaugural emerging ideas and innovation funding cycle. Proposed innovation projects should address actual and important problems encountered by care providers, patients and their loved ones in our clinical enterprise and represent urgent health challenges at Emory Healthcare.

For the upcoming funding cycle, priority will be given to ideas aligned with the following thematic areas:

  • Enhance Patient Access and Experience
  • Leverage Automation to Enhance Clinical, Operational, or Administrative Efficiency
  • Reduce Provider & Staff Burden
  • Implement New Care Models that Improve Quality & Safety
  • Drive Revenue Growth or Reduce Internal Cost

Most proposals are expected to request funding in the range of $25,000 to $70,000 over a one-year period. Given the period of Epic Optimization, projects that do not require substantial change to Epic will be given additional prioritization for the 2023 RFA. Please share this announcement with your collaborators and others who might be interested in applying. If you have any questions, please email
