CITRIS Health explores technology innovations to improve health outcomes and access for all.
The CITRIS Health initiative brings researchers, technologists and innovators together across campuses, industry and government sectors, and countries to share their best ideas and craft innovative solutions to society’s most pressing health problems, such as healthy aging and uneven, inequitable access to care.
Information technology research has untapped potential to improve health and quality of life at both individual and population health levels. Through its projects and programs, CITRIS Health accelerates these changes by shortening the pipeline between world-class health technology and its translation into everyday practice.
As more of these technology-based solutions are tested, deployed and scaled up, our society will see the results in improved and equitable health care outcomes, consistent quality of care and streamlined costs.
