The Harvey L. Neiman Health Policy Institute® studies the value and role of radiology in evolving health care delivery and payment systems, including quality based approaches to care and the impact of medical imaging on overall health care costs. Neiman Institute research provides a foundation for evidence-based imaging policy to improve patient care and bolster efficient, effective use of health care resources.


As part of the Neiman Institute’s mission to provide objective, credible research to inform the policy community on the role and value of medical imaging, the Neiman Institute funds external researchers interested in producing studies that may add substantial contributions to this discussion. Additionally, we seek to broaden the base of researchers examining the economics of medical imaging across a variety of disciplines to include economics, health services research, public health, public policy and medicine. We primarily provide opportunities to pursue smaller seed projects that may be serve as the foundation for pursuing larger research efforts from other funders.

Neiman Institute opportunities have included both competitive requests for proposals and solicited projects.  We have awarded a range of monetary and in-kind awards that leverage our analytical and clinical experts as well as our extensive data resources to include a lengthy longitudinal panel of the Medicare 5%  Research Identifiable files.

We have no open calls for proposals at this time.  Click to see our previous Calls for Proposals.

Unsolicited proposals for either in-kind or monetary awards are reviewed on a continual basis.  Interested researchers should provide the Neiman Institute a brief proposal of no more than 2 pages detailing the broad research question, study design, and budget. Proposals are considered based upon alignment to the Neiman Institute’s mission, scientific merit, technical feasibility, and available funding with preference going to proposals that leverage Neiman Institute data and analytical resources. As a policy, the Neiman Institute caps indirect costs to 15% of the total grant award.
