Vision: Collaboratively Improving Health

Collaborators writing on a whiteboard and people sitting at a table under a large lightbulb.

We believe in the power of collaborating broadly, learning and innovating alongside any partner with an informed perspective and a good idea.

Just as important is our dedication to measuring the health outcomes experienced by real people in every new model and partnership we explore, helping us to tie innovation to improvement. Then, when a success has the potential to add value to the vital, inclusive health ecosystem we envision, we share it with the world.

It’s what we mean when we talk about making Austin a model healthy city, and when we say that what starts here — at The University of Texas at Austin — changes the world.

Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking to commercialize a product or a member of a community organization with a plan for solving a systemic problem, we want the opportunity to talk about whether our resources can help.
