At the University of Southern California Center for Body Computing (CBC) we believe that technology solutions are not the problem or the drivers of our terrific and ever rising health care costs, they are the solutions, and they represent the very best achievements in modern society. The need for these digital health products, when their capability is fully realized, will transcend policy and politics.

The CBC is an independent health innovation center. Headquartered at the USC Keck School of Medicine, the CBC is an interdisciplinary brain trust that works with other USC Schools, including the Marshall School of Business, the Viterbi School of Engineering, the School of Cinematic Arts, USC Athletics, and other innovators to study, accelerate, and create digital health solutions. The CBC creatively synthesizes business, engineering, entertainment arts and medicine into new paradigms that will innovatively enhance the quality of life, especially for the 2 billion people worldwide who lack access to healthcare.
