Group Think

Who we are

LOF, LLC is a member of the Leap of Faith family of companies, including Leap of Faith Technologies, and the Leap of Faith Clinic. We work with academic centers, organizations, and industry partners to create communities of innovation and foster partnerships that accelerate the adoption of informatics innovation. Our collaborations focus on patient care, engagement, and outcomes.

Woman Informaticist

What we do

We help informatics innovators validate and demonstrate the value of their innovations using state-of-the-art informatics  tools, servers, development resources, advisors, and clinical environments that would normally be cost-prohibitive or out of reach. Comprehensive technological resources connect innovators to longitudinal electronic health records, genomics knowledge sources, and a library of open source HL7, FHIR, and Smart on FHIIR apps.

Every creative act is a leap of faith

Our philosophy

We believe that every creative act is a leap of faith. With innovation comes risk, but also great reward. Our logo depicts salmon, who every spring make that metaphorical leap of faith as they swim upstream to spawn. It represents the innate drive of entrepreneurs to create something new. Only those willing to risk losing sight of shore will find out just how far they can go.

INTERESTS

We have specific interest in these areas of informatics innovation.

BEHAVIORAL INFORMATICS

Behavioral informatics focuses on sensing, understanding, and shaping human behavior in a data-driven manner. Health-related behaviors are among the most significant determinants of health and quality of life, and are driven by health beliefs. Improving health behavior is an effective way to enhance health outcomes.

DIGITAL HEALTH

We are always interested in new ways that people can use technology to improve the healthcare experience—particularly interventions that span a variety of platforms, devices, and delivery channels. We are interested in exploring how large the Internet of Things (IoT) universe can be.

GENOMICS

By 2025, between 100 million and 2 billion human genomes will have been sequenced. This remarkable progress in genomics discovery has given us insights into complex human traits and disease, along with an overwhelming amount of data. We are keenly interested in developing tools to help us all use this data to deliver better healthcare.

USER INTERFACE DESIGN

One of the hallmarks of great technology is a user interface design that draws you in, engages you, and creates a personal, emotional experience. We are always interested in pushing the boundaries of what this experience can be.

NATURAL LANGUAGE PROCESSING

Natural language processing (NLP) can create a shared dialog around diagnosis and treatment that has the potential to improve the healthcare experience for both patient and clinicians. Such a dialog can map to standard clinical terminologies for better interoperability and data sharing. We are interested in new tools that help others develop and test new applications for NLP.

POPULATION HEALTH

We are interested in the needs of specific patient populations and are sensitive to related barriers and facilitators for effective intervention. We are interested in applications that explore the full range of media, technology, and channels for  meaningful communication.

PORTFOLIO
