In ways we could only imagine a decade ago, technology is improving the delivery of services across state and local governments. Isolated systems can now work together, we have the capacity to capture and analyze data like never before, and information can be delivered into our hands exactly how and when we need it.
But all this advancement comes at a price, sometimes a steep one, and funding to support innovation can seem elusive. Fortunately, there are a number of federal and state grant programs that have been specifically created to support innovation in specific public sector applications, and learning about them is the first step in accessing them!
Join Grants Office CEO and special guests from NetApp for a fast-paced look at how leading communities have been able to fund innovation and the technologies that have dramatically improved outcomes across government. As a thank you for participating in this event, every government representative who registers will receive a free Grants Office Funding Opportunity Report, developed just for you with information you provide and detailing the grant opportunities that could fund your community’s plans for innovation.

Healthcare providers currently function in an environment where medical inflation and increased financial risk combine to create razor thin operating margins. In order to survive, it is essential for these providers to understand federal funding priorities and effectively target grant money to fill in the gaps. This is especially true when it comes to the increasing transparency in healthcare that is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be securely stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payors, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are researching a cure for cancer, documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.
Today, stakeholders often start collecting large volumes of data for internal use or a specific purpose. Suddenly, a new state law is passed or a federal regulation is put in place that requires such data to quickly be reported and shared in any number of different ways. In order to thrive in such a fluid regulatory and operational environment, these various stakeholders must find a way to fund and plan for agility in an era that demands flexibility.
Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at how project-based grants may be used to increase the agility and flexibility of your healthcare data. The session will include a discussion around specific technology solutions and best-practices for building them into a project that is grant-friendly.

CLICK THE LINK TO VIEW THE RECORDING: Now, more than ever, funders are taking the value proposition seriously when it comes to supporting healthcare projects. In the past, funders tended to focus exclusively on improved population health indicators and effective delivery mechanisms. The proliferation of electronic health records, health information exchange, health insurance marketplaces and rising healthcare costs has created an environment where efficiency and value have become primary considerations when it comes to securing grant funding for projects in the health sector. This new normal in healthcare is characterized by a vast amount of data that needs to be stored, shared and accessed across a wide array of impacted stakeholders, including researchers, payers, public health officials and providers. Data is essential whether you are documenting a telemedicine encounter in a remote area, storing lecture content for health professional students, or using analytics to identify patient populations that need comprehensive chronic disease management or are at-risk for hospital readmissions.
Registrants will receive a funding report entitled "Grant Funding for Data Center Technology in the Health Sector," which will contain valuable information on all the funding options discussed during the presentation. Participants will also learn about specific data center technologies that can help them with their transformative projects.
Join Grants Office and special guests from NetApp for a look at the grants that can fund data center technology in the health sector, on the basis of how it will be used to achieve the 3-Part Aim of improved health status, better health care delivery and reduced costs.
