1/30/14

The Center for Information Technology Research in the Interest of Society (CITRIS) is pleased to announce that Dr. David Lindeman has been appointed as Director of the CITRIS Health Care Initiative and will be responsible for coordination of health care projects among the four CITRIS campuses (UC Berkeley, UC Davis, UC Merced and UC Santa Cruz). In this position he will facilitate research, education, and development of health care technology solutions related to chronic disease management, patient engagement, and other health care issues. Steven DeMello, former Director of Health Care for CITRIS, who is moving into the position of Senior Advisor to CITRIS, will join Dr. Lindeman in this effort.

Dr. Lindeman currently serves as Director of the Center for Technology and Aging (CTA), a collaboration of CITRIS and the Public Health Institute (PHI), and Co-Director of the Center for Innovation and Technology in Public Health (CITPH). He has worked in the field of aging and long-term care for over 30 years as a health services researcher and administrator. “We are delighted to have David with us to help direct our growing program in health care as we attempt to address some of the most pressing health care challenges of our day through technology solutions,” says Paul Wright, CITRIS Director. “His extensive experience in working with technology, public health, and aging will be a tremendous asset as we focus on projects ranging from health technology innovation to health care systems change.” The CITRIS Health Care initiative uses information technology solutions to improve access and reduce disparities and costs in health care by developing and integrating advances in telehealth, sensors and social apps/gaming. Along with collaborators at CTA and CITPH, CITRIS investigators are engaged in finding transformative, technology-enabled solutions to the pressing health care problems of the day.
