Projects

The AHI Program builds relationships with community and corporate partners through projects that involve the use of technology that aims to promote positive change. Below are some initiatives our program faculty, staff, and/or students have been involved with.

National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT) Data Fusion Center

The National Health IT Collaborative for the Underserved (NHIT) is a nonprofit organization that engages underserved populations in the development and use of health information technology to support and sustain health equity and economic viability. AHI students worked with NHIT, Tyler Technologies, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and a diverse group of “storytellers” to develop the NHIT Data Fusion Center, a public-private initiative to translate social determinants of health data into actionable community stories for local governmental, civic and educational leaders.

Parsley Health

Parsley Health is a care delivery company that leverages technology and a holistic approach to medicine to get the full picture of a patients' health to prescribe a plan for long-term healing. AHI students work with Parsley Health on a variety of projects and business-related activities ranging from clinical research, EMR-related enhancements, to workflow and outcome optimization.

Yosi Health

Yosi Health helps healthcare organizations streamline the patient check-in process, minimize in-person contact, and maximize practice revenue. AHI students work with Yosi Health on product enhancement and client KPIs related to the utilization of its services, across a diverse set of healthcare organizations to decrease no-shows, missed appointments, and time to complete initial on-boarding and general administrate work.

Long Island Digital Inclusion Coalition

AHI students and faculty have been actively involved in the formation of the Long Island Digital Inclusion Coalition, a collaborative group of Long Island community organizations, libraries, government entities, education institutions and businesses focused on addressing the three “pillars” of the digital divide – internet access, device access, and digital skills readiness – on Long Island.

MIT Hacking Racism Hackathon 2021

Several AHI students participated in MIT's Engineering Health Equity Hackathon in November 2021. Students developed solutions to address pervasive healthcare access and SDOH issues.

With support from the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM), the “Connect 2 UR Health” wellness fair provided seniors in Southampton with interactive, age-specific and hands-on iPad training sessions on relevant health conditions to assist seniors to manage their health and increase health literacy.
