Eligible projects must have the support and collaboration of clinical program leaders. Projects are co-led by a TPMG physician and a Division of Research scientist. Grants support projects up to 24 months in length and $250,000 in cost.
The Rapid Analytics Unit (RAU) collaborates with TPMG physicians on rapid-turnaround projects in high-priority areas. Typical projects take up to 12 months to complete and use only existing data.
The Targeted Analysis Program (TAP) supports projects co-led by a KP Division of Research scientist and a regional clinical/operational leader. Eligible projects must use existing data and be feasible within 6 months with a budget of $36,000 or less.
The Physician Researcher Program (PRP) supports a select group of TPMG physicians to devote part of their time to conducting research. This program helps clinical leaders translate their research ideas into studies that improve patient care.
