What do we mean by 'eHealth'?

eHealth is anything technological that can help with health and wellbeing, improve quality of life, help people to manage their long term conditions, and make life a little easier. eHealth is often called Health Tech too. 

Types of this technology include apps for mobile phones and tablets, programs such as Skype and FaceTime, or Virtual Reality simulations, but also encompasses sensors and wearable devices, humanoid robots such as Pepper, voice-controlled speakers, or even companion pets such as Paro the ‘comfort’ seal for people with dementia.

Learning more about eHealth

At EPIC we are passionate about empowering future health and social care professionals to become eProfessionals; having knowledge of and embracing digital tools that could help within their work and with the people that they care for.

We are linked with the University’s school of nursing and midwifery, in the digital professionalism stream and can offer students the opportunity to volunteer at EPIC events in order to learn more about health technology. Keep an eye on our Twitter feed for the latest opportunities. 

From January 2021, we will be able to welcome groups to book into our EPICentre to interact with eHealth technologies and learn more about their uses.
