Computing Community Consortium Blog

The goal of the Computing Community Consortium (CCC) is to catalyze the computing research community to debate longer range, more audacious research challenges; to build consensus around research visions; to evolve the most promising visions toward clearly defined initiatives; and to work with the funding organizations to move challenges and visions toward funding initiatives. The purpose of this blog is to provide a more immediate, online mechanism for dissemination of visioning concepts and community discussion/debate about them.

NSF Smart and Connected Health (SCH) Program

NSFThe National Science Foundation (NSF) has recently announced the Smart and Connected Health (SCH) program solicitation.

“The goal of the Smart and Connected Health (SCH) Program is to accelerate the development and use of innovative approaches that would support the much needed transformation of healthcare from reactive and hospital-centered to preventive, proactive, evidence-based, person-centered and focused on well-being rather than disease.

The need for a significant healthcare transformation has been recognized by numerous organizations including the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST), National Research Council (NRC), Institute of Medicine (IOM), Computing Community Consortium (CCC), and the National Academy of Engineering.”

The NSF solicitation also cited the 2010 CCC white paper Information Technology Research Challenges for Healthcare: From Discovery to Delivery. The paper was a product of the 2009, “Discovery and Innovation in Health IT,”CCC visioning workshop.

The CCC built upon this in the fall 2012 workshop, “Computing and Health: New Opportunities and Directions.”
