Center for Healthcare Delivery Science Programs

About Our Programs

Innovation Grants

The Innovation Grants Program is the Center’s signature initiative. By design, the Program aims to identify and develop future innovators and create value for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center patients, and the healthcare delivery system. The Program provides the opportunity for investigators and staff across BIDMC to design, implement, and evaluate innovative projects that advance the Center’s goals of providing better quality, more equitable, high-value care to all of our patients.  The Program was expanded in 2023 to include an opportunity for experienced machine learning researchers to use the Center’s Machine Learning Core to undertake a project not possible in their current computing environment. The Machine Learning Innovation Grant is designed to advance projects with a clear use case that are part of an established research program. Our ability to offer opportunities and mentorship in these s growing fields of research allows BIDMC to retain some of the most talented young clinical faculty while at the same time sustaining the culture of innovation that has differentiated BIDMC from many of its peer organizations. 


Healthcare Delivery Science Conferences

The Center convenes three conferences for Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center staff, trainees, and clinicians from across the institution. At the monthly Healthcare Delivery Science Grand Rounds, both senior and junior researchers present ongoing works in the field that may still have methodology questions but are well on the way to completion. At the lunchtime Work in Progress sessions, established researchers and scientific advisors come together with fellows and junior faculty to discuss issues facing investigators and workshop early-stage ideas and methods on a monthly basis. The Value Seminar Series is an interactive series designed to highlight clinical innovations at BIDMC, stimulate the consideration of value, sustainability, and scale, and provide a forum to catalyze the spread of value-focused innovations across the Medical Center and BILH system.
