The Cardinal Health Foundation recently announced that we’re again accepting applications for our E3 Grant Program, which each year commits $1 million to initiatives that improve the effectiveness, efficiency and excellence of health care.
This competitive grant program is open to any non-profit organization with a focus on patient safety. Whether you’re working at a hospital, ambulatory care center, clinic, or health care association – if you’re interested in implementing proven-successful best practices that improve patient care and efficiency – we invite you to apply for funding.
Since 2008, the Cardinal Health Foundation has invested more than $6.15 million in more than 211 grants through this program. We’re very focused on helping health care providers across the continuum of care to reduce the length of time it takes to implement evidence-based practices and to work collaboratively to improve the quality of care, nationwide. We’re exceedingly proud of how past E3 grant recipients have leveraged this funding to save ‘days, dollars and lives.’ They’ve implemented best practices that have reduced days spent in the hospital, saved dollars that would otherwise have been spent on avoidable adverse events and most importantly, saved and improved the lives of patients.
Here are a few shining examples:
