As you get ready to launch your pilot journey, don’t forget about these resources — provided to you through CHIC — that you can take advantage of.
SOLVE is a team of applied researchers based in San Francisco’s safety net healthcare system. We’ve partnered with SOLVE to provide your teams with metrics and evaluation support for your technology pilots. You may reach out to them with questions or for a follow-up consultation.
We are always here to provide a sounding board and feedback to your pilot design and help troubleshoot issues you run into during the pilot process. Reach out to CCI to schedule a time to meet. Please describe what you’d like to speak about and copy anyone who should be invited to the meeting.
We’ve distilled the best of the lessons learned from our California program to create the Technology Pilot Toolkit, an overview of the technology pilot life cycle accompanied by a set of supportive resources.
Another great similar resource is the AMA’s Digital Health Technology Implementation Playbook, focused specifically on Telehealth implementation.
Finally, don’t forget about the CHIC Tech Hub Library, where you can access past case studies and spotlights to learn from.
As the final report for the Seed Funding grant, you will complete and submit this case study template to the CCI team summarizing your tech pilot process and outcomes.
The Case Study Template is the backbone for your Case Study Narrative – a public facing article about your pilot project. We discussed the Case Study and recommendations for completing it in detail on the June 2 Webinar:
How to complete and submit your case study:

Awards will be made based on soundness of project proposals and budgets. Given the global COVID-19 pandemic, we shared updates about budget flexibility and proposal review criteria on the April 7 community call. For the full discussion, View Recording or Download Slides from that meeting.
The updated criteria include:
The pilot project charter outlines the who, what, and why of your project. The charter will help you communicate about your project and document the narrative when you are reflecting on your pilot experience.
Also, while not part of the proposal, please reference the Case Study template to understand what you will be working towards documenting by the end of your pilot.
The budget will help us understand how you are planning to spend the money and guide our funding decision. You may request up to $75K, though we may not fund the full amount budgeted depending on your plan. You may include budget for staff time.
As part of this metrics plan submission, you should consult with the SOLVE team. We’ve provided a template here, but you can create and submit any equivalent metrics plan that works for your organization.
