Mission and Goals


The Columbia Center for Children’s Digital Health Research’s mission is to foster the design, operationalization, implementation, and evaluation of digital health research that has a direct impact on child and population health. Our areas of interest include mHealth, eHealth, telemedicine, artificial intelligence, electronic health records, clinical decision support, personal health records, and social media.


The CDHR will build new partnerships at Columbia and beyond to lead innovative research projects that examine how current and emerging technologies can be used to improve pediatric healthcare.
