Our institutions


The Initiative is based in the Computational Health Informatics Program (CHIP) at Boston Children's Hospital, a multidisciplinary applied research and education program led by Dr. Kenneth Mandl. We leverage the wealth of CHIP's expertise in biomedical informatics and its access to a wide spectrum of data, including national-scale insurance claims datasets, patient registries, healthcare encounter data, social media content, and research networks.


The Initiative is supported by grants from the NICHD and Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
