The program is aligned with the Foundation’s efforts to engage the health care sector in promoting population health and broader policy considerations. With greater access to health data, including data from delivery systems, as well as health information technology, researchers can better answer important questions to build a Culture of Health and inform health policy.
For more than 45 years, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) has worked with others to address the major health and health care issues of their time. They believe deeply in the importance of research, evaluation, and learning to build a Trans disciplinary evidence base that helps inform efforts to address complex and interrelated determinants of health.
HD4A aims to reduce the barriers often faced in accessing rich data by serving as a conduit between data owners and interested researchers. Through this HD4A call for proposals (CFP), RWJF will make valuable data from unique data owners available to researchers.
