Cardinal Health develops and supports programs that help healthcare providers implement best practices that can truly transform patient care. Between 2008 and 2012, the Cardinal Health Foundation invested more than $12 million, in a wide variety of programs, to improve healthcare efficiency, cost-effectiveness and quality.
Again this year, the Cardinal Health Foundation is seeking proposals from healthcare institutions that will impact the efficiency and quality of care. Grants between $15,000 and $35,000 will be awarded to approximately 25 organizations in 2013.
Focus areas include:
- Medication safety across transitions of care from the acute setting to the community/home
- Implementation of WHO checklists in the operating room
