Organisation profile

Organisation profile

The organisations that form the National Health Service (NHS) – and those that provide social care – form a multi-billion pound business sector that impacts on the lives of every single person in the UK.

Thousands of people lose their lives in hospital each year because deterioration in their condition is not spotted early enough for treatment to be effective. An ageing population also means there's an ever-expanding demand for healthcare.

At the Centre for Healthcare Modelling and Informatics, we're working to develop technology that can make the work of these organisations more efficient. We conduct research that aims to make the NHS and social care services better for society.

We're using our information systems and computer science expertise to make the day-to-day jobs involved in healthcare delivery and administration easier. We're using our established links with healthcare and social care professionals to research new solutions to relevant problems – and providing knowledge and expertise to organisations and individuals that want to adopt information, communication and sensing technologies.

And because there's a growing need for better technology that can provide solutions that enable healthcare to be delivered at scale, we're looking for ways to deliver the technology required – and to equip healthcare professionals with the knowledge and skills to use it.

Our researchers covers the following areas of expertise:

  • Applied health informatics
  • Clinical outcome modelling
  • Digital wellbeing
