CDHAI provides access to world-class researchers with expertise in digital health technologies; technology value, adoption, and diffusion; health care operations; advanced statistical and analytical techniques; applications of artificial intelligence and machine learning in health care settings using both structured and unstructured data; and a broad understanding of the business of health care. Research project sponsorships leverage CDHAI’s capability as a neutral, unbiased third party and are constructed around a specific research project that the partner is interested in conducting in collaboration with CDHAI researchers. The partner will specify the scope of the project and well-defined deliverables will be jointly agreed upon.

Generally, such projects are aimed at generating novel insights and advancing understanding in some aspects of digital health. Projects can include primary data collection through surveys, interviews, and focus groups, followed by statistical and econometric analysis of the data. They may also involve the analysis of archival data, or a survey of research literature. Deliverables include research papers, white papers, executive briefings, and executive presentations. The financial commitment for such projects varies, depending on the scope of work.
