Digital Health Initiative

The Boston University Digital Health Initiative is a collaborative effort between the Institute for Health System Innovation and Policy and the Hariri Institute for Computing, two of BU’s university-wide research institutes.

Digital Health leverages technologies, such as embedded systems, mobile computing, social networking, and cloud platforms, and methodologies from computing and data sciences to tackle a range of applications related to healthcare systems, from medical informatics to healthcare delivery and administration. Innovations at this nexus of technologies, methodologies, and applications hold great promise for improving the quality, efficiency, and accessibility of healthcare, with significant benefits to the economy and society.

The Digital Health Initiative will be supporting research projects and convening a university-wide, multi-disciplinary community of researchers, practitioners, and students in pursuit of this goal.

Our spring 2019 call for admissions is now open. All interested Boston University faculty may through the Rafik B. Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science & Engineering’s Research Incubation Awards platform.

The deadline for proposal submission is April 11, 2019 at 5:00pm.
