CHIDS Collaboration Opportunities
Our collaborations with private corporations, not-for-profit organizations and academic institutions drive us to collectively achieve our vision for improving the practice and delivery of healthcare through the application of information and decision technologies. CHIDS welcomes such partnerships with external entities through the following avenues.
CHIDS offers two levels of membership with differing financial commitments. These memberships are typically for industry partners.
Partners may collaborate with CHIDS on specific research projects. The financial commitment for research projects depends on the scope of work. We encourage our partners to become members of the center first and then engage in research sponsorships depending on specific research needs. This enables the partner to take advantage of membership benefits and build a long-term stakeholder relationship with CHIDS and the Smith School of Business.
As an academic, not-for-profit research center, we depend on external funding to build infrastructure and resources for our faculty and researchers. We seek large endowments for the center to expand our capacity and strength. We are currently seeking such donors to establish our Concept HIT Lab.
In addition to membership opportunities and research project sponsorships, our partners have engaged with us in a variety of ways, including hiring student interns, lecturing in graduate and undergraduate classes, and participating in events at the Smith School. We would be glad to discuss ways in which your organization can get further involved.
