The Fund for Public Health in New York (FPHNY), on behalf of the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (NYC DOHMH) is requesting proposals from medical practices interested in receiving patient education tablet kiosks for use in their practices. The NYC DOHMH’s Primary Care Information Project (PCIP) seeks to increase patient and family engagement in health care by placing tablet kiosks at select medical practices in New York City. Tablet kiosks allow patients and their caregivers to easily access their Personal Health Records (if available) and a wide variety of health-related educational resources.
Interested practices are strongly encouraged to submit their RFP responses by the first phase deadline of this RFP as additional tablet kiosks will not be awarded if all funds are expended during the first phase of this program. After the first phase, responses will be evaluated on a first come, first serve rolling basis, once per month while the RFP remains open.
Interested practices are invited to view the full RFP, including submission requirements and the Application below:
June 2013 Update: Please note that this RFP remains open and applications are currently being accepted for the later phases of deployment, subsequent to Phase 1. Target dates for later phase installations will be in mid-August.
