Digital Health

The Digital Health research programme will focus on responsible use of modern technologies to improve health and wellbeing, including but not limited to wearables, mobile apps, conversational systems, and home monitoring systems. Application areas include health promotion, supporting behavioural change, managing long-term conditions, as well as developing trustworthy AI-based decision support tools for personalised health.   

At present, digital population technologies are showing positive results in clinical trials but need larger effect sizes and more flexibility to achieve substantial population health gains. Working with collaborations enabled by testbed capabilities, joint studentships, and the Imperial-X environment, we want to develop multidisciplinary programmes in both low and high technology readiness areas.  

We already have active projects on wearable cardiovascular monitors, in-home monitoring, as well as diabetes prevention, and scope to rapidly develop new projects.
