IBM Health Corps: New Ideas for Solving the World’s Health Problems
Through its new Health Corps program, IBM plans to dispatch interdisciplinary teams to six destinations around the world starting in 2016 -- and more in subsequent years. Health Corps is modeled on the company’s Corporate Service Corps and Smarter Cities Challenge, pro bono programs that send teams of IBMers to help communities solve problems that they choose. The focus this time is on healthcare -- improving the quality of healthcare, increasing access to care, and addressing the social and environmental determinants of health, including clean water, safe transportation and access to healthy food.
