Brown U. Lifespan Center for Digital Health: Opportunity for Israel-Rhode Island Collaboration



Brown University and Lifespan on the new Brown-Lifespan Center for Digital Health. The center’s mission is to improve health and eliminate disparities for both individuals and population through the use of technology via the collaboration between the state’s leading health care system and Ivy League university. See press release.

The RIIC is proud to be one of the center’s Affiliated Non-Profit and Governmental partners. See link to the center's webpage

It is exciting to see in the quote below from the center’s Director, Megan L. Ranney, MD, MPH, the excitement around the work already being done with partners from Israel.


"Our newly launched Brown-Lifespan Center for Digital Health facilitates an innovative, accessible, and equitable way to bring healthcare to everyone. We are excited to bring creative minds from diverse industries together to design technologies that address our world’s most pressing health challenges. We believe in the power of collaboration and look forward to our first Israeli partnership with Diagnostic Robotics to develop usable and effective predictive tools. With the support of our industry partnerships and federal grant funding, other projects we are spearheading are an AI-based mobile peer support tool for opioid use disorders as well as developing and evaluating virtual interventions for mood, bullying, and other behavioral health concerns.”


We encourage Israeli companies and academic institutions in the field to explore potential collaboration and look forward to supporting the development of partnerships between Israeli organizations and the Center for Digital Health. Please contact the RIIC at info@riic.org for more information.
