The National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship was selected by the Cardinal Health Foundation as one of 42 grant recipients to fund organizational programs that help U.S. hospitals, health systems and community health organizations improve the effectiveness, efficiency and excellence of patient care.
The grant will help support NCCS’s efforts in using technology and mobile applications to provide cancer patients and their caregivers with the safest and most effective information and questions to help them through their cancer diagnosis.
The Cardinal Health E3 Grant Program awarded funding of up to $30,000 per grant to health care providers in 25 states. “We’re pleased to support health care providers that are working to implement best practices and improve the effectiveness, excellence and efficiency of patient care,” said Shelley Bird, executive vice president of public affairs for Cardinal Health and chairperson of the Cardinal Health Foundation. We congratulate the National Coalition for Cancer Survivorship and their work to achieve meaningful, long-term improvements.”
For the third consecutive year, this competitive grant program specifically encouraged providers to submit funding requests for programs that seek to improve medication management or operating room safety. Since the inception of the E3 Grant Program in 2008, the Cardinal Health Foundation has awarded 189 grants totaling more than $5 million.
