One of the four ‘grand challenges’ we are focusing our research on is ‘integrated and inclusive care through smart health'.
Smarter community-based health and care
Using real-time information to support self-management of health and wellbeing, and to facilitate timely interventions where people live.
Smarter community services can reduce hospitalisation need and time and promote more independent living in the elderly and patients living with multi-morbidity.
Innovations need to consider the existing digital divide in access to technology and digital literacy to avoid fuelling health inequality.
Smart services for the smart hospital
Optimising care through effective diagnosis, patient-specific treatment planning and outcome prediction, and evidence-based interventions.
Smarter hospitals will contribute to more effective and transparent medical decision making, rationalise and reduce care costs, and delivery better overall experience to patients and their families.
