The event aims to showcase

  • some of the work going on in digital health devices across UCL – a look at some ways in which the data gathered from medical devices can be used at home or in a clinical setting
  • medical devices as a gateway to useful patient data and how this can best be analysed/utilised (raising questions around data formats/ unsupervised monitoring/ linkage/ validation)
  • perspective of this area from representatives of the hospitals themselves – UCL Partners
  • examples from Industry and small companies of their work
  • goal to bring academics, clinicians and industry together offering an opportunity for networking
