Clinical Innovations for Improving Detection & Management of Hypertension and High Blood Cholesterol

  • The CDPCP plans to select and fund 12-15 sites
  • Applications are due October 2, 2020 by 5:00 pm CST
  • Estimated total funding available is $343,500

The purpose of this request for proposals is to solicit applications that will enable the Nebraska Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS), Chronic Disease Prevention & Control Program (CDPCP) to partner with qualified health systems and/or clinics to plan and implement sustainable policy and systems change(s) for improving detection and management of adult patients with undiagnosed and unmanaged high blood pressure and high blood cholesterol in high burden populations resulting in the focused outcomes of reduction of hypertension and hyperlipidemia.

The purpose of the grant is to support the design, implementation and evaluation of approaches to address evidence-based strategies aimed at improving the prevention and management of cardiovascular disease. To assist the funded entities to produce quality grant focused outcomes and provide a seamless approach to the grant work, the CDPCP developed a framework called CAAPIE which stands for Capture, Assessment, Action Planning, Implementation and Evaluation. For each of the phases of the grant work the CAAPIE consists of a series of standard data collection points and tools to comprehensively and consistently evaluate interventions at the local level throughout the cooperative agreement that funded agencies would be required to engage in as part of their award.

“RFP Question Responses:”

Question: Can we focus on our Medicare population as the priority population as opposed to using our whole population of people age 18-85? Will we be less likely to be chosen for the grant if we don’t include the whole population?

DHHS Response: Yes, you can focus on the Medicare population as priority for this work. However, we also need the data recorded for the overall general population to report to CDC. We would also encourage you to look at subsets of your Medicare population to target. For example: patients of a particular race, age, gender which are disparate within the Medicare population for these diagnoses.
