Transforming Health with Integrated Care: Funding Components

The THINC initiative is comprised of a suite of strategic funding opportunities that together advance knowledge creation, capacity development, and knowledge mobilization in pursuit of transformative integrated care. The funding components include:

Catalyst Grants

These are one-year funding opportunities to support knowledge creation, implementation and/or policy analysis projects aligned to one or more relevant research areas (e.g., integration of care, primary, home and community care, long term care, health workforce). Successful grants will focus on innovations in how health care systems and services are organized, delivered, governed, held accountable, financed, and/or funded and the impact of those innovations on the Quadruple Aim goals and health equity. All projects must be grounded in an integrated knowledge translation (iKT) approach and must be of high priority to the project’s policy and/or decision-maker(s).

Implementation Science Team Grants

THINC Implementation Science Teams will inform the implementation, evaluation, and/or spread and scale (share) of transformative evidence-informed integrated care policies and delivery system interventions that encompass intersectoral collaborations within and/or beyond the formal health care delivery system, and rigorously evaluate the outcomes and impacts and their contribution to advancing the Quadruple Aim and health equity for all. Read more about this initiative’s areas of focus and essential elements.

Are you a researcher, decision maker, provider, patient/family/caregiver or community member interested in partnering on the THINC Implementation Science Teams initiative? Check out the Partner Linkage Tool for more details.

Embedded Research

Embedded research awards aim to develop a cadre of embedded scholars, thereby bolstering applied research capacity and rapid learning and improvement within the health system.

Knowledge Mobilization and Impact Hub

The Knowledge Mobilization (KM) and Impact Hub will support networking and collaboration among all funded THINC grantees and knowledge user communities by fostering coordination and collaboration across THINC funding components, leading initiative wide KM activities and amplifying the collective impact on achieving the Quadruple Aim and health equity.
