ARPA-H’s New Health Initiative: The HEROES Program Promotes Community-Based Interventions to Improve Health Outcomes

ARPA-H is looking for candidates to apply for the HEROES model to enhance community health

The Department of Health and Human Services’ Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-H) has announced the launch of a new program aimed at improving health outcomes in specific geographic areas. The Health Care Rewards to Achieve Improved Outcomes (HEROES) program will evaluate a new payment model that incentivizes community-based interventions to enhance health outcomes.

Under this initiative, participating entities such as non-profit organizations and consortiums will receive direct payments to address and reduce specific health harms within their designated area. The program seeks to promote collaboration and innovation in healthcare delivery, ultimately improving the well-being of individuals in the community.

Interested applicants are required to submit abstracts by June 17, with a final solicitation expected to be released by April 22. To learn more about the HEROES program, individuals are encouraged to register for upcoming webinars scheduled for March 26 and April 2. These webinars will provide detailed information about the program, its objectives, and how interested parties can participate in this groundbreaking initiative.
