Health Games Research is a national program that funds research to advance the innovation and effectiveness of digital games and game technologies intended to improve health.

It is funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation’s Pioneer Portfolio and headquartered at the University of California, Santa Barbara.

The database  allows one to search for information in the health games field related to games, publications, resources, organizations, and more.  Hundreds of health games are included.
One can search by keyword,  over 60 topics (as food groups, physical activity), target population (as adolescents, health care professionals), genre (as adventure, sports, and strategy), and more.

Publications include research briefs and featured colleagues.
