About Centre for Intelligent Healthcare
Advances in medicine in the last 20 years has brought treatments for illnesses previously considered incurable and more individuals are living with long term conditions. When you add to this the increasing number of people with co-morbidities due to demographic change and lifestyle choices, it is clear that the very nature of our healthcare services has to alter.
This will require new approaches, new technologies and supporting evidence as we all become responsible for ensuring we stay healthy, active and independent for as long as possible since all of us wish to age well. The Centre for intelligent Healthcare through its dynamic staff, advisory boards, partner organisations and horizon scanning tools will be at the forefront of this research providing the evidence for change.
We have a growing team of researchers with expertise and wide ranging experiences in technology and healthcare. This multidisciplinary team is further strengthened by our links with companies, hospitals, public health bodies through our Advisory Board, Honorary Research Fellows and Associates. We also have a growing team of PhD students who contribute to a vibrant and thriving research environment. The team sits within three key themes:
- Behaviour and Implementation Science
- Prototype Design, Testing & Regulation
