U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and The Rockefeller Foundation Partner to Accelerate the Adoption of Food is Medicine in Health Systems

WASHINGTON | January 31, 2024 ― The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and The Rockefeller Foundation announced a new partnership to accelerate the adoption of Food is Medicine in health systems. Through this partnership, HHS and The Rockefeller Foundation aim to improve health outcomes and health equity by engaging a broader public audience in understanding nutrition, accelerating collective understanding of Food is Medicine interventions and their impacts, and exploring strategies to scale successful Food Is Medicine programs to more eligible Americans.

“We know good food is the foundation of good health, and study after study has found Food is Medicine interventions can make people healthier while reducing health care costs,” said Dr. Rajiv J. Shah, President of The Rockefeller Foundation. “I am proud The Rockefeller Foundation will be collaborating with HHS to help improve health outcomes and advance health equity by ensuring Food is Medicine interventions reach those who stand to benefit from them most.”

While Food is Medicine programs are widely recognized as powerful interventions, they only reach a fraction of those who could benefit. Through a public-private partnership, HHS and The Rockefeller Foundation will exchange information and ideas to:

  • Advance and leverage research design and findings through knowledge to produce definitive evidence on clinical health outcomes, cost effectiveness, and optimal program design.
  • Engage a broader public audience in the meaning and value of FIM interventions and resources.
  • Support Food is Medicine adoption by identifying opportunities and barriers to support greater uptake and scaling.
  • Ensure Food is Medicine supports diverse individuals and communities with a focus on health equity.

“HHS and The Rockefeller Foundation are working together to accelerate food as medicine adoption in various health systems and communities. We are eager to build on this dynamic opportunity and we anticipate powerful outcomes through collaborative

3M Health Information Systems collaborates with AWS to accelerate AI innovation in clinical documentation

ST. PAUL. Minn., April 18, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — 3M Health Information Systems (HIS) announces a collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to accelerate the innovation and advancement of 3M M*Modal ambient intelligence. As part of the collaboration, 3M will use AWS Machine Learning (ML) and generative AI services, including Amazon Bedrock, Amazon Comprehend Medical and Amazon Transcribe Medical, to help expedite, refine and scale the delivery of 3M’s ambient clinical documentation and virtual assistant solutions. Joining forces with AWS will help 3M to further transform the patient-physician experience, placing the focus back on the patient and reducing administrative burden for physicians.

Working with AWS, 3M HIS will advance its conversational AI platform, which is currently preferred by more than 300,000 clinicians. The platform supports cloud-based solutions like 3MTM M*Modal Fluency Direct for real time speech recognition compatible with more than 250 electronic health records (EHRs) and 3MTM M*Modal Fluency Align for ambient clinical documentation. Working with AWS, 3M will help deliver responsible, supportive ML-based clinical documentation and virtual assistant solutions that integrate directly into workflows and help ensure that the physician is in control of the information being entered into a patient’s health record.

Pairing 3M cloud-based clinical intelligence with AWS ML services will further help enable 3M ambient clinical documentation solutions to unobtrusively support the complex task of documenting the patient interaction, in compliance with applicable laws and guidelines. This joint approach enables 3M to responsibly deliver credible, usable and valuable technology-powered solutions at scale to bring tangible value to both patients and physicians.

This collaboration expands on 3M HIS’ early success in bringing conversational AI and ambient intelligence directly into clinical documentation workflows through 3M Fluency Align. Working with AWS will make it easier for clinicians to automate accurate, complete and structured notes
