Advancements in technology, greater acceptance of remote communication by patients and insurance providers, and a trend toward an increasing demand for providers and cost effective approaches will ensure telemedicine will play a much large role in the future of healthcare delivery than it does currently.

Harnessing the Law for Translational Science: The UC Initiative on Translational Science and the Law (ITSL)
1. Scale and Significance: Law shapes the effectiveness and impact of research translation across the T1-T4 continuum. Effective T1 involves contracts and intellectual property; T2 researchers navigate human subjects regulation; healthcare policy shapes T3 impact; and law itself is a powerful lever for change at T4.
Scale and significance of the problem
New pathogens and developments in diagnostics and therapeutics are transforming healthcare. Comprehensive planning for paradigm-changing advances, when possible, can mobilize the full range of expertise available in a complex institution like UCSF and in our community partners. Systematic planning can identify new research opportunities, reduce institutional costs and improve patient care.

Problem Digital and connected health technologies promise to reduce health care costs and improve health outcomes. Many CTSA researchers have digital health ideas they want to pursue and test, but their institutions are not able to fully provide the resources and expertise they need to build initial prototypes and/or to conduct clinical research using digital technologies.
