With new technologies (patient-controlled electronic health records, unprecedented access to health information, wearables and sensors for monitoring, novel digital interventions, etc.) there are great new opportunities for prevention and for managing long-term conditions. There is also a financial push: as more becomes possible, it will be necessary to manage more care outside clinical settings, with people taking greater responsibility for their own and their families’ health.

These changes present new challenges: in re-thinking the role of the patient, of their family and friends, of the clinician and the system of care, and in reviewing what is and should be possible using digital technologies. In this event, we will present ongoing research into digitally-enabled approaches to supporting self-care and shared care.

Part of UCL's Festival for Digital Health.
