Latest news and views on digital health and health technology

Thanks to everyone who came to last night's DHOx session on Wearables in Healthcare. I hope that you all found it as interesting and engaging as I did, and many thanks especially to our four fantastic speakers Aravind Ganesh, Alexa Chan, Keith Errey and Mark Brincat. A big shoutout is also due to Susan Graham for a wonderful job as MC for the evening, and for her help in curating and putting the evening together.

For those of you who haven't already seen, or signed up for it, next week is the August event hosted by The Hill, focusing on "Building Healthcare Applications". For those who haven't yet heard about The Hill, it is a healthcare ideas lab open to everyone, a partnership between Digital Health Oxford, Oxford University Hospitals, and the Oxford Academic Health Science Network. There have been a fantastic number of projects submitted over the past couple of months, and it's really exciting to see the enthusiasm and endeavour present in Oxford in this field. The event will once again be at the Tingewick Foyer in the John Radcliffe Hospital, on 10th August from 17:30 until 20:00, and the format of the evening will be:

  1. Project support: This event will present an opportunity for those with ideas to get help in moving them through the digital innovation pathway from prototyping through development and deployment to funding. If you've told us about your idea, we will have reviewed it and can help you to navigate through the process.

  2. Speed Dating: People with skills looking for a project will have the chance to meet people with projects who in turn will be able to start building a team.

  3. Speakers: People looking for inspiration can hear about digital innovations from our speakers:

    • White October (Mobile Software Development Consultants): “Building Digital Health Applications: A Coder’s Perspective”
    • Global Initiative (Mobile Software Development Consultants): “Design & Project Management for Building Digital Health Applications"
    • Fred Kemp, Deputy Head of Technology Transfer at Oxford Innovation: “IP considerations in developing Digital Health Applications”
  4. Project Showcases:

    • Fluid Motion
    • Hospital in Hand App
    • Sentimoto - Healthy Aging
