Project Summary

The University of Florida Health System (UF Health) proposes a Capacity-Building Project with two areas of focus that will enhance readiness to facilitate future HSII implementation activities across a complex health system: (1) HSII oversight and facilitation and (2) HSII data and IT infrastructure. To undertake the project, UF Health will mobilize an HSII Capacity-Building team of dedicated personnel who will engage executive champions and key stakeholders to establish system-level processes, strategies and data/IT infrastructure that will facilitate future HSII Implementation Projects. The areas of focus and deliverables address specific needs identified through ongoing UF Health planning discussions and the PCORI HSII Participation summary statement.

The Capacity-Building Project will assemble a streamlined team of executive champions with the authority to establish priorities and commit resources across UF Health’s system-level units leading care delivery, community engagement, data and IT, and quality and safety functions. It also ensures dedicated HSII effort for personnel with the expertise and project-management support required to engage UF Health’s broader HSII Operations Committee and stakeholders to develop HSII Capacity-Building deliverables aligned with system-wide resources, strategic initiatives and use cases. The proposed HSII Capacity-Building Project will allow UF Health to maximize future success and sustainability of HSII Implementation Projects by leveraging and strengthening ongoing initiatives that enhance the delivery of evidence-based, patient-centered, outcomes-driven health care.

About HSII Capacity Building Projects
Funding for HSII Capacity Building Projects was the first funding opportunity available under HSII, to support HSII Participants’ efforts to prepare for successful implementation and program evaluation as part of HSII Implementation Projects. Through HSII, HSII Participants will undertake implementation projects to actively advance the adoption of new evidence, drawn from PCORI-funded research, into their care delivery settings.
