Technological innovation has the potential to accelerate discovery, facilitate the delivery of high-quality healthcare, improve patient outcomes, decrease costs, and address the complexity of challenging health problems such as cancer. Realizing the promise of disruptive transformation in health and health care will require well-coordinated, multidisciplinary approaches that draw from social, behavioral, economic, and computer science disciplines, as well as engineering, medicine, and biology.

The purpose of the National Science Foundation (NSF) - NIH Smart Health Program is to support the development of transformative high-risk, high-reward advances in computer and information science, engineering, mathematics, statistics, behavioral and/or cognitive research to address pressing questions in the biomedical and public health communities.
