Individual Collaboration: HIT Lab Membership
If you share our mission of improving the quality and accessibility of healthcare through ICT innovation, consider joining our community as a HIT Lab Member. Our far-reaching network of Members participates in research, teaching and publications initiatives aimed at aiding innovative healthcare provision to those who need it the most.
In addition to conducting research, member benefits include opportunities to co-author/contribute to HIT Lab publications, access to the knowledge pool of fellows at the Lab, invitations to attend ‘HIT Lab only’ events such as innovation sessions and symposiums, and access to the HIT Lab online knowledge base and healthcare library.
We offer several membership categories, which enable professionals with diverse levels of academic achievement and industry expertise to participate in our initiatives.
The HIT Lab membership committee reviews applications once every month (25th of the month) and makes recommendations to the Board of Fellows to grant membership. Candidates are notified on the 7th of the following month with a decision. Unsuccessful candidates may re-apply after a period of one year if their application is significantly different from the previous one. Student members (if selected) will be required to submit supporting documentation such as proof of degree or current school affiliation.

Many of the HIT Lab’s most successful efforts involve close partnerships with premier research institutions, healthcare providers and others in the field. Our past collaborators include Columbia University Medical Center, Jewish Home Lifecare, and San Ysidro Health Center. In addition, we have worked with major pharmaceutical developers, state and federal agencies, and local community based non-profit agencies to deliver a wide range of expertly driven healthcare and innovation research.
We work with collaborators to identify the public health and ICT issues that are most relevant to their constituencies, develop research and teaching programs to effectively address those challenges, jointly seek funding as necessary, and implement innovative programs.
