Service-Directed Request for Applications on Pandemic-Related Disrupted and Deferred Care

The goal of this RFA is to support focused research that will leverage VA research expertise to provide evidence-based information that the VA health system can use to better serve Veterans during the ongoing pandemic response and recovery, as well as possible future public health emergencies where care may be reduced or disrupted. These projects will focus on non-COVID priority health outcomes by examining the effects of the COVID-19 health emergency response, rebound, and recovery on population health; care utilization, including system-level and patient-level decision making; and care delivery practices across the health system. Ideally, these projects will assist VHA partners to develop strategies at the level of patient, provider, and health system to mitigate adverse effects of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and improve care delivery post-pandemic.

a. Timeline: Service-directed RFA for Winter and Summer SMRB ITS windows opens October 21and April 22, respectively.
