Better health through
people & technology

CWPHS (pronounced “Sea Whiffs”) is a center of excellence with the mission to connect, translate, and synthesize efforts in human-centered digital health.

Our Values

S    Systems over reduction

We embrace the complexity of systems and manage via modeling and modularity.

P    Person over patient

We honor the many identities, roles, strengths, and capacities of each person.

A    Agile over linear

We manage uncertainty through iteration, triangulation, and efficient use of methods.

N   Network over hierarchy

We work with others and consciously embrace diversity, equity, and inclusiveness.
