ECHAlliance

UCL has, through CHIME, become a Partner in the European Connected Health Alliance, an initiative spanning government, healthcare, industry and academia that delivers leadership for the development of Connected and MHealth markets and practice across Europe and beyond.

This partnership will see UCL and the ECHAlliance work together at a strategic level to promote connected health initiatives.

Professor Dipak Kalra, Director of UCL CHIME and President of the EuroRec Institute, said "Our research and teaching increasingly focus on the opportunities for health informatics to support integrated care and patient-centred care. Through the eHealth Innovation project, led by UCL and in which both the ECHAlliance and EuroRec are partners, we are investigating the success factors that enable innovative patient-centred care solutions to scale. This new partnership will connect us with many other innovative European and US initiatives with which we hope to collaborate."
