RFA Now Open: 2023 LAUNCH Program
The Wake Forest School of Medicine Center for Healthcare Innovation (CHI) is accepting applications for the 2023 LAUNCH Program.
The purpose of the LAUNCH Program is to provide an annual innovation incubator, competition, and accelerator for solutions in the healthcare system. This year’s theme is aimed to find solutions pertaining to clinician satisfaction, burnout, and efficiency. This can be focused on providers, nurses, or any clinical frontline workers.
The CHI accelerates the translation of medical discoveries into healthcare systems and wellness programs to increase efficiency and improve health outcomes. The CHI pursues projects of all kinds—new care models, practices, products, or systems—that accelerate the translation of discovery directly into the clinical care and wellness environment.
Any group of Atrium Health team members may apply. Teams are encouraged to include individuals with varying functional areas of expertise. For example, medical providers and trainees, advanced care providers, nurses, case managers, pharmacists, allied health professionals, data scientists, implementation scientists, business manager, etc.
