The SHARP program provides for new competitively-awarded cooperative agreements to establish Strategic Health IT Advanced Research Projects (SHARP). Each awardee will implement a collaborative, inter-disciplinary research program addressing one of four research focus areas (for descriptions of each area, please see FAQ #4 below). Each awardee will develop and implement a cooperative program between researchers, industry, health care providers, and other health IT sector stakeholders to transition the results of research into practice.
Please provide an overview of the SHARP program.
