The Fellowship of the Screen




One of the ways we see innovation in health care taking shape is through collaborative work that is global in reach. With the William Drenttel Innovation Fellowship, providers and researchers from around the world are able to join the work of the Center for Innovation for 12 months in partnership with their areas of expertise.

Benjavan Upatising, Ph.D. (Den), received her Ph.D. in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University in 2013 and holds a master’s degree in Industrial and Operations Engineering from University of Michigan and a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering from Purdue University. The main focus of Den’s Ph.D. research was on home telemonitoring.

While pursuing her Ph.D., she spent two years working on-site with the Center for Innovation at Mayo Clinic while focusing on the effects of telemonitoring. With her work through the Innovation Fellowship towards her Ph.D., Den worked on publishing three papers around research into telemonitoring and telemedicine. We are pleased to share her work here with the links below.
