Cisco Grants Strategy Team can help you Secure Grant Funding

Cisco Grants Support Desk at ATA 2013If you visited the Cisco booth at last week’s ATA 2013 conference, you might have had the opportunity to speak onsite with a member of the Cisco Grants Strategy Team.  But if you didn’t, we want you to know that the Cisco Grants Strategy Team is still available to help.

We find that many organizations struggle to identify funding sources for telehealth projects.  The Cisco Grants Strategy Team can help by researching Federal, State and Foundation grant opportunities that align with your organization’s needs. 

The mission of the Cisco Grants team is to:

  • Deliver grant education/training and funding research services
  • Offer feedback on applicant eligibility and project competitiveness
  • Provide targeted grant application and writing support
  • Consult on post-funding project implementations

Cisco also offers a series of webcasts to help you learn more about specific grant opportunities.  Upcoming webcasts include:

Dynamic Care: Managing the Patient’s Experience by the Minute

Wherever you go and whatever you do in the 21st century, you generate a data trail. Your credit and debit cards, mobile phone, laptop computer, tablet — not to mention retailers, banks, hospitals, hotel systems, and activity on social networks, blogs,  and email — all generate data.

Yet, we are currently connecting less than 1 percent of the things, people, and machines that could be online, communicating and collaborating. As we create the Internet of Everything (IoE), the amount of data will rise exponentially, created by your car, clothes, medicines, food, e-books, and presence on video surveillance systems.

The mountain of data collected about people and things has led to a growing industry dealing with high-volume, high-variety, high-velocity, virtual data sets (“the 4Vs”, according to Gartner) — often called “Big Data.” The growth of Big Data is an inevitable reality of a digitally connected world.
