UC Davis Health and Amazon Web Services (AWS) announce first academic medical center Cloud Innovation Center for digital health equity.
The Cloud Innovation Center will allow clinicians, patients, developers, and students to exchange ideas, as well as design and prototype solutions focused on making digital health more equitable and accessible worldwide.
We will tackle some of the most pressing challenges around health equity, access to care, and population health in the backdrop of a health system that is rapidly undergoing digital transformation.
All CIC innovation challenge outputs, including the proofs of concepts, will be published as open source for other community members to access, build upon, and implement.
Many clinicians and patients are mandated to use certain products and services, but they’re often left out of the decision-making process. Our goal is to leave no patient, clinician, or researcher behind in the digital transformation of healthcare.”
The project, working with Amazon Web Services, will make UC Davis Health the first academic medical center to launch a Cloud Innovation Center. Focused on digital health equity, the Cloud Innovation Center will allow clinicians, patients, developers, and students to exchange ideas, as well as design and prototype solutions focused on making digital health more equitable and accessible worldwide. The CIC will explore challenges that address difficult issues around how to provide equitable care to a diverse patient population.
UC Davis Health and Amazon Web Services will each commit personnel to work with clinicians, students, organizations, and the community to define and source real world challenges around digital health equity through the Cloud Innovation Center. The challenges will explore the difficult issues around providing equitable care to a diverse patient population by addressing issues around remote patient care, bias in AI algorithms, transportation, and mental health.
Our partnership with AWS enables us to unlock the intrapreneurial spirit of our clinicians, patients, developers, and students in the region to provide a one-of-a-kind space where people who’ve never had a voice in healthcare will be the ones driving the thinking and innovation.
