AIMed is the result of initiatives from CHOC Children’s Sharon Disney Lund Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute (MI3), led by Dr. Anthony Chang, CHOC’s Chief Intelligence and Innovation Officer.

The mission of MI3 is to transform CHOC Children’s into a leader in Medical Intelligence and Innovation.

The Sharon Disney Lund Medical Intelligence and Innovation Institute (MI3) at CHOC Children’s is a unique and first-of-its-kind institute that creates, focuses and executes projects in the areas of intelligence and innovation in pediatric medicine.

These two interrelated disciplines, extremely limited in development in the pediatric realm, hold great promise to change the trajectory of pediatric care around the world.

MI3 offers multiple programs or “missions” that bring individuals, teams and ideas together and . accelerates innovation by creating a “network of networks” on a local, regional and international level.

In addition to launching AIMed, MI3 is credited with bringing together leaders across pediatric hospitals in the US and around the world, an initiative that resulted in the creation of an international Society for Pediatric Innovation (iSPI).

Using new and existing business models along with the latest advances in artificial intelligence, genomics, nanomedicine, robotics, and other areas, MI3 inspires and enables innovators to tackle the problems of today with the tools and the mindset of tomorrow.

Most popular programs and initiatives include iClinic  (intelligent clinic) focusing on testing new technologies and reinventing the clinic of the future, CHOC MI3 Summer Innovation and Intelligence Internship, which is open to high school, undergrad and graduate students, MI3 Monthly Briefings, open to public, and featuring speakers, providing news and updates on innovation and intelligence, and creating a forum for CHOC associates to connect with innovators outside of the hospital walls. There are multiple innovation activities to help innovators at CHOC learn and experiment. Best ideas can be brought to market via a partnership with an Innovation Institute, LLC which serves as a commercialization arm.
