University of California-San Francisco Key Developments

Organovo Holdings, Inc. Announces Collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco to Develop 3D Bioprinted Tissues for Skeletal Disease Research

Organovo Holdings, Inc. announced a collaboration with the University of California, San Francisco to develop 3D bioprinted tissues for skeletal disease research. The collaboration has been made possible by a generous gift from the Methuselah Foundation (“Methuselah”) as part of its ongoing University 3D Bioprinter Program. The partnership also includes the UCSF labs of Tamara Alliston, Chelsea Bahney, Jeff Lotz and Robert Nissenson. Under Methuselah's University 3D Bioprinter Program, Methuselah is donating at least $500,000 in direct funding to be divided among several institutions for Organovo bioprinter research projects. This funding will cover budgeted bioprinter costs and key aspects of project execution.

UCSF and CipherHealth Partner to Launch Population Health Platform

The University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and CipherHealth LLC have launched a customizable care-management platform called View that aims to improve the quality of care for patients with complex health conditions. The platform, which helps engage patients and facilitate more efficient team coordination among providers, was developed in collaboration between the two entities. View integrates CipherHealth's patient engagement software platforms with evidenced-based patient care plans and multidisciplinary care management workflows. These care plans and workflows were developed by UCSF faculty and care management staff to help care for patients with chronic or complex health conditions. The collaboration built upon a previous vendor arrangement, in which UCSF Medical Center used CipherHealth's patient engagement product, Voice, to automatically call patients after they had been discharged from the hospital to monitor their conditions. Accessible on any web-enabled device, View aggregates patient data from disparate sources to simplify coordination across multiple care teams throughout the care continuum. By providing a single platform for patient data aggregation, View streamlines the care management process and ensures that any provider can easily reference a patient's longitudinal history and be notified of any upcoming procedures or appointments. The solution gives providers a simple and streamlined view of population-level trends, in addition to the individual journey of each patient. In addition to aggregating patient data, View allows seamless, real-time communication between care providers to efficiently and accurately build a collaborative care plan, even when that care involves multiple types of healthcare providers or specialists, who have virtually no interaction with one another. With View, these clinicians can easily reference data entered by another provider, as well as communicate with one another on the patient's progress. This correspondence bridges gaps between the various members of one patient's care team, and leads to a smoother care experience for the patient.
