HEROES program launched: incentivizing community-based interventions to enhance 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 released a draft solicitation for the Health Care Rewards to Achieve Improved Outcomes (HEROES) program. This program aims to evaluate a new payment model that incentivizes community-based interventions to enhance health outcomes in a specific geographic area. Under the HEROES program, 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 initiative seeks to promote collaboration and innovation in healthcare delivery to ultimately improve the well-being of individuals in the community. 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. The agency plans to release a final solicitation by April 22, with interested applicants required to submit abstracts by June 17.
