Share novel data insights by integrating our research and clinical missions
Advance patient and provider experiences
Digital Health Insights Grant Program (DIGI Grant)
On an annual basis, UMass Memorial Health funds the DIGI Grant Program to support the development of novel approaches to using digital health technologies. We are proud of our 2023 DIGI Grant Awardees and their innovative projects.
Advanced Therapeutics Program (ATRx)
The ATRx program is the core of our portfolio, enabling patients living with chronic diseases greater and more equitable access to life-changing, next-generation therapies using innovative approaches that bridge a critical care gap.
Collaboration with UMass Chan Medical School
CDHS and the Program in Digital Medicine (PDM) at UMass Chan Medical School have a synergistic relationship. Through a unique clinical research and care partnership, PDM and CDHS work together to support and achieve their shared vision.
PDM develops “breakthrough” ideas to develop health technology products. It provides rigorous and reproducible analysis and access to networks of experts and innovators.
CDHS is the “follow-through” for implementing effective health technologies, providing direct patient care and access to patient and institutional data.
