The David Druker Center for Health Systems Innovation (Innovation Center) invents and deploys breakthrough innovations to advance the health and well-being of communities. We apply human-centered design and leverage technology to create scalable solutions that address the pressing health challenges of our time. Our work is based on the following core beliefs:

  • Health is more than health care.
  • Everyone in a community has something to contribute to each other’s health.
  • Health systems must partner with communities to support each community’s unique needs.

Our History

linkAges™ builds healthy communities through a network that connects people of all ages and empowers individuals to improve each other’s health by providing opportunities for meaningful connections. Strengthened community connections lead to reduced social isolation and loneliness for all participants and specifically improve the health and well-being of older adults and family caregivers. The linkAges network can be tailored to meet the unique needs of diverse communities.
