Our projects are tapping into the strength of the Children’s Health Fund National Network to try out new technologies in the field. We’ll build on the knowledge we gather to develop robust programs that apply technology effectively for the nation’s most vulnerable children.
A primary goal of The Samsung Innovation Center is educating the next generation of health care providers on the unique challenges and complexities of providing care to undeserved pediatric populations. Our online Medical Student/Resident curriculum, made up of webinars and online courses, provides students and residents with crucial information and skills for serving undeserved children.
Our pilot projects in Southern Arizona, New Orleans, Baton Rouge, New York and Washington, DC will field-test emerging technologies on Children’s Health Fund mobile medical clinics. They’ll explore cutting-edge technologies from high-speed vision screening to the latest telehealth equipment. These multi-year projects will help us shape the future of health technology for the nation’s most vulnerable children.
The most advanced pediatric mobile medical clinic
Children’s Health Fund has been designing mobile clinics for more than 25 years. With help from Samsung’s cutting-edge technology, we’ll replace Dr. Seth Ammerman’s San Francisco mobile clinic below with a vehicle that showcases the power of the mobile approach for pediatric primary care. Interactive digital features will engage the homeless and at-risk teens who use the clinic, while sophisticated communications systems make it efficient and responsive.
