DSU and Sanford Health announce CyberHealth Strategic Alliance

Dakota State University in Madison and Sanford Health of Sioux Falls announced Wednesday a pioneering CyberHealth Strategic Alliance between the two organizations.  The alliance will drive cyberhealth innovation and research, and create workforce and economic development opportunities for the state. 

DSU President José-Marie Griffiths said that she worked with Sanford Health Chief Information Officer Josh Robinson to develop the partnership.

Griffiths explained what is meant by the term CyberHealth.

Griffiths said that the Alliance will focus on a number of Sanford and DSU’s present needs and interests, including areas like talent acquisition, development and retention, collaborative research, and health data research.  She said that a Cyber Solutions Accelerator Lab will be designed for testing and proving technology capabilities to solve real-world problems.  

Robinson said that he’s excited for what this alliance means for Sanford and DSU.

One of the goals of the CyberHealth Alliance is to make it possible for both Sanford Health and DSU to expand capacity and enhance capabilities.  Robinson said that the Alliance will leverage the strengths of both organizations and enable them to “go further faster than we could alone” to make life better for people across the state and beyond.
