Responsible Health Innovation
Jay’s program of research addresses the implementation and ethical implications of innovations in health care, with a special focus on innovative models of equity-promoting community-based care, digital health technologies, and applications of AI in health care. His research leverages qualitative social science approaches, and draws on theory from organization studies and science & technology studies. Jay partners closely with community members and health system stakeholders to ensure his research is practically relevant, and his work informs the ethical design of health system innovations that advance social justice in aging, public health and health care.
Jay is leading current research projects in three specific areas:
- Ethical design of AI for health: Jay uses qualitative and ethical design methods to study the values that are built into AI and digital technologies for use in health care and public health. Current projects include a focus on rehabilitation, public health, and data infrastructures for use in health and public health.
- Health equity and virtual care: Jay’s team studies the ways that organizations can more prominently build health equity considerations into their use of virtual care and digital health technologies. Current projects relate to the policy frameworks, organizational strategy, clinical workflows, and community experiences to promote health equity in virtual care.
- Equity-promoting community care: Jay’s team studies innovations in community-based care that centre the experiences and priorities of structurally marginalized communities. Jay collaborates with community partners and policymakers to explore strategies for more equitable futures of community care.
