PROV-ED 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”. Three Pitchfest events have been held since 2019, unearthing 15 initiatives that have been honed and disseminated statewide.
By facilitating the adoption of these successfully piloted initiatives, PROV-ED is helping to spread innovation beyond hospital and HHS boundaries.
