Founded in 2006, the University of Southern California (USC) Center for Body Computing (BCB) was one of the county’s first academically-based digital health research and innovation centers. Over the last 13 years, the USC BCB has been working on the digital health frontier, honing expertise in implantable and wearable sensors, smartphone-enabled virtual care, big data, artificial intelligence (AI)/machine learning, and virtual reality to build patient-centric applications and services. For example, the USC BCB’s ambitious, ongoing “Virtual Care Clinic” connects patients with an AI-powered avatar of their real-life doctor via the “Doc On” app to answer patient and caregiver questions.
 
Last September, USC BCB began a collaboration with Baxter International to develop life-sustaining digital solutions. Though more specific information was scarce, the two will focus on open innovation around the continuum of care, establish further business collaborations as they go, and build software solutions. As a USC BCB member, Baxter joins a team of leading companies, non-profit organizations, and government agencies working to modernize healthcare.
