Upcoming events


The evolving role of user experience (UX) in the development of digital health and care applications: current trends and future directions. 

When: Wednesday 10 October 2018, 13:00–14:00.  

UX plays an important role in the development of successful eHealth applications.

In this webinar we will give a quick overview of the essentials of UX testing for digital health and care applications, current trends and future opportunities. 

We will share the results of a recent scoping review and discuss the availability of local UX resources and expertise in Cornwall and Isles of Scilly.

This webinar is aimed at a broad audience of health and care professionals, patients as well as eHealth developers.

EPIC Conference – ‘A Cornish eHealth Ecosystem in the making?’

Where: Atlantic Hotel, Newquay 
When: Tuesday, 13 November 2018 

We are approaching the 18 month mark of the project, our half way point, and think it’s a great time to celebrate our progress so far and thank people from across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly who have contributed to the EPIC project.

We will use this session to look to the future and focus on our theme ‘A Cornish eHealth Ecosystem in the making?’ which will harness our collective ambition, discuss how we will make our eHealth environment sustainable and support further collaborations.

The event will include:

  • A session learning from successful eHealth clusters in other parts of the UK
  • How we can create our own eHealth cluster – The next steps
  • Digital innovation matchmaking – A session to link stakeholder project ideas to technology innovators, creating new projects that can access the EPIC Challenge Fund.
  • A session on funding for eHealth innovation - for companies, health and social care organisations and collaborations.
We welcome all interested SMEs, patients, health and care practitioners, students and all in between. Your input is so valuable to the project, to nourish networks and the ultimate success of our eHealth ecosystem.
