Working in partnership with Eskaton and Front Porch, senior living providers in Northern and Southern California, Lighthouse researchers conducted focus groups with residents and staff to identify barriers to technology use.

Surgical robotics and health informatics are two key technologies that form the basis of a collaboration between the First Affiliated Hospital of Sun Yat-sen University (FAH-SYSU) and CITRIS.
Research partners from MITRE, CITRIS Health, UC Davis and UC Merced worked with health care teams to identify digital health barriers and co-create new ways to address them.
