Litesprite Joins AWS Health Equity Initiative to Promote Health Equity and Accessibility
Litesprite participates in the AWS Health Equity Initiative, a $40 million, three-year commitment from Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Seattle, WA - Litesprite, a leading digital health company, is pleased to announce its selection and participation in the AWS Health Equity Initiative, a $40 million, three-year commitment from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to address health inequities by supporting organizations that are dedicated to improving healthcare outcomes for underserved communities.
As part of this initiative, Litesprite will collaborate with AWS to develop innovative solutions that promote health equity and accessibility for all. With its unique mobile gaming platform, Litesprite is well positioned to reach a broad and diverse audience, including those who may have limited access to traditional healthcare services. Swatee Surve, Litesprite CEO and Founder, will be a featured guest speaker at the AWS DC Summit speaking on Leveraging Technology to Advance Global Health Equity.
"We are excited to join the AWS Health Equity Initiative and to work with AWS to address health inequities in our communities," said Surve. "We have proven to reach under-served populations across the U.S. By leveraging our expertise in mobile gaming and digital health, we create engaging and effective solutions that promote better health outcomes for everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances."
Litesprite's flagship product, Sinasprite, is a mobile game designed to help individuals with chronic conditions manage their symptoms and improve their overall well-being. The game uses evidence-based techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and positive psychology to help players develop healthy habits and coping skills.
"We believe that games can be a powerful tool for improving health outcomes," said Surve. "By combining the latest research in health behavior change with the engaging and immersive nature of games, we can create solutions that are not only effective but also fun and engaging."
The AWS Health Equity Initiative is part of Amazon's broader commitment to promoting health equity and accessibility. Through this initiative, AWS is working with a range of organizations to address health disparities and improve healthcare outcomes for underserved communities.
“AWS believes individual health outcomes should not depend on socioeconomic status, race, ethnicity, or neighborhood, “said Maggie Carter, Global Lead, Social Impact at AWS. “Cloud technology can help address inequities in global health to expand access to the services people need to live longer, healthier lives–no matter who they are or where they live. Through the AWS Health Equity Initiative, we look forward to helping Litesprite and other organizations worldwide use the power of cloud computing to advance health equity and improve health outcomes.”
