At UCSF S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech, we bridge public health expertise with digital health companies to create and adapt products that reach historically marginalized populations.


We are the first health equity incubation partner dedicated to helping digital health companies improve their products so that it empowers the people and health systems who need it most. We do this by directly partnering with digital health companies, patients, communities, and health systems to bring equity to every phase of the technology development process. 

We have investigated usability challenges of mobile health applications to facilitate development and adaptation of apps for patients from all racial and ethnic groupsassessed readiness and willingness to use patient portals in a safety-net care setting, and partnered with companies like Omada Health to translate their products to under-resourced populations

S.O.L.V.E. Health Tech is embedded within UCSF, but our solutions are far-reaching. You can read more about our academic-industry partnerships in Harvard Business Review and the Health Affairs Blog
