Digital Health Experiences :: Create + Collaborate

Utility Grid

A Health Utility Grid (HUG) is a scalable community cloud-based data infrastructure that is HIPAA compliant, interoperable, and sits on a blockchain-enabled framework to facilitate the collection, storage, and secure sharing of data with advanced analytics for education, research and health improvement purposes.


Health Architects are specially trained clinicians and healthcare administrators who engage in face-to-face conversations grounded in empathy mapping and human sciences to collect social, environmental and behavioral determinants of health data, design digitally-enabled models of care, and navigate individuals to an ecosystem of resources that best meet their needs.


Our Digital Health Innovation Sprints bring together a myriad of community stakeholders from across the digital health ecosystem (including patients, clinicians, researchers, administrators, businesses, technologists, investors, and entrepreneurs) to drive Open Innovation around high impact problems in healthcare through a series of design thinking workshops.


How we are funded

DHIT is funded through institutional grants, corporate sponsorship and by our Industry Council members who invest resources and expertise in return for market access, market insights and market talent. Use of funds is determined by our Advisory Board, comprising national and international thought leaders from the clinical research and medical education fields.
