Our work is split over three research themes
Digital health technologies
A wide range of digital health technologies can prevent ill-health, promote well-being and support the delivery of health and social care.
From remote monitoring of health conditions and patient self-care management to supporting lifestyle behaviour change and managing appointments.
Digital transformation at the system level
Looking to a digital future with improved health outcomes, increased efficiency, and ultimately reduced health-care expenditure.
The Centre for Health Technology brings together researchers with over 30 years of evidence-based research experience in health and technology. Together, they work to enable innovative healthcare solutions that reduce the pressure on services, support healthy ageing in our communities and stimulate an economy of wellbeing that benefits all.
