Summary

Dr. Patrik Bachtiger is the UK’s first clinical research fellow in Digital Health. His PhD study is funded by Imperial Health Charity, NIHR, and NHSX, as part of Professor Nicholas Peters’ joint Trust-College Connected Care Hub venture – partnering with patients, the NHS, and tech organizations to deliver better outcomes in prevention, treatment, and a more efficient and accessible healthcare system. 

After completing his academic foundation training at UCL, award-winning MSc study at QMUL, and Core Medical Training at King’s College London, he was the recipient of a prestigious Harvard Knox Fellowship, entailing a full scholarship for postgraduate study at Harvard University (MPH, health policy and digital health concentration). Alongside cross-registration at Massachusetts Institute for Technology (MIT), Kennedy School of Government, and Harvard Medical and Business Schools, he completed a practicum supervised by Dr. Trishan Panch at Wellframe, which provides digital health management to millions of patients in the US.

His current PhD study focuses on the broad intersection of digital and public health. Among others, he is a co-applicant on a substantial grant from the inaugural NIHR & NHSX Artificial Intelligence Award, supporting the study of point-of-care diagnosis of cardiovascular disease using artificial intelligence applied to digital biomakers. In parallel, he continues to administer the largest longitudinal participatory epidemiology study (LoC-19) to use an NHS patient-facing electronic health record as a two-way interface, with collaborative outputs addressing important health policy questions related to the Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. This work has been presented internationally and published in digital health outlets from Nature and The Lancet.

Patrik continues to build his interest in rigorous evaluation of clinical pathways that use digital health solutions (e.g. Current Health, Luscii, Patients Know Best) by driving the development of these pathways across Imperial NHS Trust. He also continues to supervise BSc and MSc students and maintains a broad and active teaching portfolio. He has an honorary clinical contract with Imperial NHS Trust and practices as a medical registrar.
