The PROV-ED Project aims to disseminate innovation, by sourcing and scaling value-based emergency department (ED) initiatives with demonstrated outcomes. Initiatives are selected for statewide rollout via an EOI calling for applications, followed by selection process culminating in the “PROV-ED Pitchfest”. The PROV-ED Project has adopted 10 initiatives in total. The 2019 Pitchfest resulted in the selection of six initiatives and four new initiatives were selected in the 2020 Pitchfest.
By facilitating the adoption of these successfully piloted initiatives, PROV-ED is helping to spread innovation beyond hospital and HHS boundaries.
The PROV-ED Project also builds capacity building for health service redesign and quality improvement through multidisciplinary clinician engagement, workforce skills development and by creating a model for widespread implementation of initiatives.
