Each year, the Center for Health Innovation offers internal pilot funding to UNC Health and UNC School of Medicine employees for health care innovations across a broad spectrum of interest areas, such as:

  • Care delivery models
  • Health equity/disparity improvements
  • Technology development
  • Advanced analytics
  • Business models
  • Workforce development
  • Translational research

Proposals are evaluated on their significance, novelty, methods, feasibility, and alignment with the Center’s mission.
