The University of Plymouth’s Centre for Health Technology brings together digital health and technology expertise from across the University to drive the development, evaluation and implementation of innovative technologies, products, services and approaches to transform health and social care and create an economy of wellbeing.
Focusing principally on digitally-enabled innovations, our researchers work with a network of cross-sector partners, including NHS, industry, health and social care organisations and patient groups, to deliver research and development of international importance, enabled by the unique population and geographical characteristics of the South West region of England.
The Centre for Health Technology brings together researchers with over 30 years of evidence-based research experience in health and technology. Together, they work to enable innovative healthcare solutions that reduce the pressure on services, support healthy ageing in our communities and stimulate an economy of wellbeing that benefits all.
In this series, they share their views on the current state of health and care in the UK, and what its future could look like.
