Purdue growing research and outreach to deliver on-the-ground health care solutions

Friday, March 04 2022

Purdue University is enlarging its capacity to create, verify and deliver innovative solutions to health and health care problems with a significant expansion of the university’s Regenstrief Center for Healthcare Engineering (RCHE).

The center will enhance the mission first outlined when the Regenstrief Foundation established RCHE in 2005 by venturing outside conventional boundaries for health care research. It will use novel multidisciplinary studies that examine broad questions around health and well-being, and will emphasize delivering practical, implementable solutions directly to communities in keeping with the Purdue land-grant mission.

“We first will listen to the communities we serve,” said Pavlos Vlachos, director of RCHE and the St. Vincent Health Professor of Healthcare Engineering. “Our holistic approach puts the community and patient at the center of everything we do. We want to listen to patients and clinicians, to identify needs, and then harness Purdue’s vast talent to develop, test and validate solutions. RCHE will act as a bridge carrying the benefits of research and discovery directly to the people they are designed to help.”
