As part of the larger healthcare transformation to improve health care and health outcomes in regards to Cardiovascular and Diabetes, increase efficiency and reduce costs, application of digital health technologies and tools is increasingly having a greater impact on patients, providers and payers than ever before. To accelerate research in this area, a workshop on Digital Health for Cardiovascular and Diabetes (adult and pediatrics) is planned to bring together the expertise of clinicians, engineers, industry and government agencies to address issues in healthcare delivery using digital health technologies.
Goals of the Workshop
- Significantly expand the “network connectivity.” The workshop will connect digital health needs with digital health innovators. It is well-recognized that every part of the healthcare system could benefit from digital transformation but we will need to invent the pathways by forming many new teams around new collaborative research projects, that will be seeded through multi-sources of funding.
- Sow the seeds for larger efforts. By increasing the network size, through seed funding, our goal is to prepare teams to ultimately successfully seek larger funding from NIH, NSF, ARPA-H, AHA, foundations etc.
- Accelerate translation: It is crucial to move research results into clinical application that can be scaled, and hence we will engage entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in the overall effort.
