We are fascinated by the power of crowds and interested in how soliciting input from a diverse pool of individuals can lead to improved health and health care for patients and populations.  Specifically, our research explores the ways in which crowdsourcing can be used for problem solving, surveillance and monitoring, data analysis and funding in the medical research field. 


The Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation engages interdisciplinary teams to reimagine health care delivery for dramatically better value and patient outcomes.

The Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) is Penn's center for research, policy analysis, and education in health systems. Its 200 Senior Fellows analyze the medical, economic, and social issues that influence how health care is organized, financed, managed, and delivered across the U.S.

We are passionate about pursuing impactful research and eager to explore opportunities that will enable a culture of social media and health innovation at Penn, Penn Medicine, and beyond.  Have an idea for a project?  Interested in collaboration?  Click here to learn more about how to contact us.
