As part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s effort to address long-standing barriers to achieving health equity, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) has launched the Community Connected Health Initiative
, focusing on the power of innovation, technology and the human connection to meet people in their own communities and achieve better health.
The Community Connected Health Initiative explores and pursues government actions and policies that help ensure communities do not get left behind as the rapid innovations in health technologies continue to transform the U.S. healthcare and social service landscape. As key inputs for this effort, OSTP has released a Request for Information on Strengthening Community Health Through Technology
The Health Resources and Services Administration Center for Innovation (HRSA CFI) is hosting a series of roundtables in partnership with OSTP. These roundtables will engage both grassroot and grasstop stakeholders who can help provide better understanding of this vision of health centric and connected communities through their lived experiences. These roundtables will look at innovation and the use of technology in community-based health settings, with a particular focus in the following key areas: successful models of digital health technologies in community-based settings within the United States and abroad, barriers to uptake, trends from the COVID-19 pandemic, how user experience is measured, need for tools and training, ideas for potential government action, and effects on health equity.
Please sign up for the public roundtables you are interested in attending by selecting from the options below. You will be emailed a Calendar invite to hold the time within 24 HOURS, that will then be updated to reflect the public streaming information closer to each respective event.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to: HRSAInnovation@HRSA.gov with questions.
