The Health Care, Technology, & Place Collaborative Program (HCTP) addresses the relationships between and among health care recipients, providers, technologies, and the settings where care takes place. The aim is to develop humanistically-informed scientists and scientifically-informed humanists to generate new lines of scholarship about geographically dispersed, technologically mediated health care in innovative ways. Interdisciplinary study is formulating questions, solving problems, and addressing issues that are too broad or complex to be adequately addressed by a single discipline or profession. The dispersion of new modes of care and services to multiple settings underscores, for example, the need to link housing policy and architectural design to health care and health outcomes.
