About us

The Peterson Health Technology Institute (PHTI) is a $50M initiative that provides independent evaluations of innovative digital health technologies to improve health and lower costs.

Through its rigorous, evidence-based research, PHTI analyzes the clinical benefits and economic impact of digital health solutions, as well as their effects on health equity, privacy, and security. These evaluations inform decisions for providers, patients, payers, and investors, accelerating the adoption of high-value technology in healthcare.

PHTI was founded by the Peterson Center on Healthcare, a healthcare philanthropy committed to making higher quality, more affordable healthcare a reality for all Americans.
