Digital Health and Care Unit
We drive quality and efficiency improvements in the delivery of healthcare, through the implementation of digital health technologies. We improve care through supporting our partners and helping them to deliver the best of Digital Healthcare innovations and systems to real patients in a commercially effective way.
Grounded in primary care, the DHCU is a unique collaboration between academia, clinicians and industry, offering digital health technologies access to more than 100,000 patients. We produce practical real-world evidence for these interventions at scale, with support from clinical, academic and business experts.
Our members include national and international experts from disciplines including patient-centric design, geriatrics, occupational health, clinical informatics and more, together with business support capabilities ranging from venture capital to market appraisal. The work of the unit is validated by assessment of impact through academic research conducted by DMU Health and Life Sciences.
