Updated versions of the draft topic texts for IHI calls 6 and 7 are now available on the Future opportunities page of the website. The topics under consideration for inclusion in the calls, which are due to be launched early next year, are:

Two-stage topics (IHI call 6)

  • Support healthcare system resilience through a focus on persistency in the treatment of chronic diseases
  • Development of practical guidance and recommendations for using real world data/real world evidence in healthcare decision-making

Single-stage topics (IHI call 7)

  • Improving clinical management of heart disease from early detection to treatment
  • User-centric technologies and optimised hospital workflows for a sustainable healthcare workforce
  • Clinical validation of biomarkers for diagnosis, monitoring disease progression and treatment response

The topics are now being reviewed by the IHI Governing Board as part of the wider Work Programme. They may therefore change between the versions published today and the call launch, and applicants should check the final, approved topic texts once the calls are launched.
