Our Thesis

Digital health technologies have the power to transform healthcare. Yet many new technologies are hitting ‘last mile" issues and failing to deliver on their promise. We believe that access to the creative minds and patients at our world class medical center can drive insights into the successful development, implementation, and adoption of new digital health technologies.


Our Expertise

Data Science (AI/ML)

A field of study involving the intersection of statistics, computer science, advanced analytics (machine learning/AI), data visualization, and human expertise focused on data-driven approaches to extract knowledge and meaning from complex data to solve real-world problems.

Product Management

CDHI’s digital product managers have strong experience in design thinking, lean product management, and user-centered design. They put this expertise to use to gain deep empathy for user personas, problems, and needs, and to hypothesize, test, and measure product concepts. The team develops our product strategy and roadmap, and works with engineering in an agile balanced team to launch minimum viable products (MVPs) and releases. They continuously evaluate when it’s time to pivot, persist, or double-down on the product.

Project Management

Expertise in the full life cycle of project management- from initiating through planning, executing, controlling, and closing the work of a team to achieve specific goals on time and on budget.

Software Development

CDHI has software engineering expertise in mobile, web, and API development utilizing secure, scalable, serverless cloud computing platforms, as well as legacy VM architectures.  We design and build patient and clinician facing apps, tightly integrate with the Epic utilizing SMART-on-FHIR, CDS Hooks, FHIR, and Mulesoft Anypoint.

EHR Integration

CDHI’s engineers are experts in healthcare data integration using HL7 v2, FHIR, and IHE, utilizing integration platforms such as Epic Interconnect, Mulesoft Anypoint, Infor Cloverleaf, and InterSystems Ensemble & HealthShare.

Digital Health Policy

CDHI has national experts on digital health policy who are advancing nationwide electronic health information exchange, interoperability, patient access and engagement, patient-generated health data, social determinants of health, shared care planning, health equity, and privacy and security.

Our Team

We pair some of the brightest minds at UCSF with other healthcare and technology leaders to advance digital health innovations at any stage in the process.
