Since 2012, more than $1 million has been distributed to BWH investigators through these awards. Click here for more information.

BCRISP invests in innovative ideas to redesign and improve care at Brigham Health through small, staged investments. BCRISP’s goal is to rapidly identify successful pilots and position them to grow within the organization. To be successful, pilots must address Brigham Health Areas of Strategic Focus. For FY19, we are most interested in proposals in the categories detailed below. Click here for the RFP. BCRISP finalists will receive up to $50K in funding as well as strategic guidance and implementation support to test a 9-12-month pilot of their idea. Proposals are due July 20.
