HII-C creates apps, infrastructure, and knowledge resources enabling health IT to meet the needs of a transforming healthcare system.

We do this through an approach that involves collaboration of multiple stakeholders - academic, healthcare delivery, commercial, government. We create highly functional apps, as well as underlying infrastructure in the form of knowledge resources and services. Through testbed tools and in cooperation with standards development initiatives, we help evolve ideas from prototype to production and the marketplace.

Meet The Team

Let's get specific.

HII-C is a co-laboratory, i.e., a cooperative collaborative research and development environment. Hosted by Arizona State University (ASU), it provides core resources to foster multi-institutional collaboration on development of next-generation health IT solutions, currently being put together by us and our partners.

Applications

We develop high-value use cases using modern languages and application platforms to support the devices that clinicians and patients love.

Technology Infrastructure

We provide both cloud-based and ASU-hosted infrastructure to support data analytics, interoperable services, and core building blocks underlying future healthcare and person-centered health management.

Collaboration

No one lives in a vacuum. Our projects run as cross-functional teams of experts spanning healthcare and technology domains, ensuring that solutions solve meaningful clinical problems in sound, secure, HIPAA-compliant ways.

Data

Interoperability is meaningless without rich, thoughtful data schemas supporting simple, concrete data points up through abstract knowledge metamodels.

Applications and Infrastructure Projects

We're actively developing several applications deployed to testbeds on AWS and VMware.

A co-laboratory for health IT innovation.

Healthcare is increasingly complex and is undergoing a radical transformation due to a number of disruptive factors, with the main overall change being a transition to a person-centered health system rather than an episodic healthcare intervention system.  These factors have generated a growing demand for capabilities in health IT, not capable of being addressed by existing fragmented, dedicated, proprietary legacy electronic health record (EHR) systems.  These include better ways to:

01

Integrate Data

Bust data silos isolating pertinent information across multiple sources spanning naturally incongruent governance policies. Records are most valuable when they can move to the right people at the right time in a secure manner.

02

Make Coordinated Decisions

Carry out decision-making, planning, and coordination tasks to manage transitions of care across care venues with a single integrated care plan.

03

Visualize

Navigate HIT systems based on complex relationships, trends over time, and across related parameters to overcome the rigidity and inefficiencies of EHRs and provide context (patient, provider, setting, activity)-specific views and proposed actions.

04

Connect to Patients

21st-century patients can manage themselves using sensors, mobile devices, and consuming applications. Monitoring and interaction can be greatly expanded using existing COTS technologies.

05

Track and Improve

Make iterative improvements through analytics, dashboards, and other tools at person, practice, or other aggregation levels.
