Digital technologies – such as electronic health records, apps and wearable devices – have shown great promise in transforming the way we deliver healthcare. Such technologies are becoming increasingly present in the world of healthcare, bringing with them an explosion of data.

As a relatively new development in medicine, we must ensure that these technologies are used safely and effectively, and that they’re treated and evaluated with the same integrity as any other healthcare intervention. We also need to be able to link up and consolidate the increasingly complex data that these technologies bring, and turn them into useful information that can improve healthcare and inform policy, both locally and globally.

Our work seeks to address these issues, influencing digital health policy and practice across the globe while using data to make impactful discoveries about both individual people and whole populations.
