Dr. Holden's B-PHIT Indy initiative received the 2016 Chancellor Charles R. Bantz Award from IUPUI's Office of Community Engagement and Office of the Vice Chancellor of Research. B-PHIT Indy stands for Brain-Protective Health Information Technology and is a community-based initiative to involve older adults and informal caregivers in the design and evaluation of technologies to promote the healthy aging brain and help manage mental illness.
Health Innovation Lab (HIL) alumna Dr. Preethi Srinivas and HIL director Dr. Rich Holden are co-PIs of a Regenstrief Innovation Challenge grant called HAPPY MEDIUM. The project is a 12-month study of a “medium-tech” intervention to reduce the use of over-the-counter medications with adverse cognitive effects among older adults. Medium-tech combines familiar physical objects such as paper and cloth with electronic components (e.g., circuits, sensors, LED lights) to maximize the ease of use and usefulness of a product.
