Applicants whose proposals are selected by one or more Collaborative company will establish and conduct a mutually agreed upon project. Here’s how it works.


Applicant Submissions

To submit an application in response to an Open Call, you need to prepare a brief proposal following the online submission guidelines. Application submissions are welcomed from individuals as well as companies, domestic or international.


Initial Screenings

The Collaborative will conduct initial screenings of applicant submissions to prioritize internal resource reviews.

Priority will be given to those projects that represent opportunities to reduce costs tied to health care, potential benefit to patients/health care consumers and positive impact on one or more socioeconomically disadvantaged population.


Internal Resource Reviews

Each Collaborative company will determine whether to proceed with a particular applicant’s project based on a review of both the proposed innovation and the internal resources required. In the event more than one Collaborative company seeks to work with the same applicant on the same or different projects, the applicant will be notified and a call or meeting convened so that the best approach can be determined.


Applicant Notifications

Upon completion of initial screenings and initial resource reviews, the Collaborative will notify all applicants of the status of their submission. Following notification, applicants will work with the Collaborative company (or companies) to find mutually agreeable terms under which the Collaborative company would support the project.
