Technologically and socially relevant research into digital health

For digital health technologies to be effective, interdisciplinary collaboration is essential.  The IDH brings together relevant expertise from across the whole of UCL including engineering, medicine, life and social science disciplines. Our researchers’ interests include:

  • developing novel interventions which improve health and wellbeing of individuals
  • improving healthcare systems performance
  • gaining insights to influence public health and policy

IDH members’ expertise includes machine learning, AI, human computer interaction, imaging, virtual reality, mhealth, online interventions, electronic health records, epidemiology, pervasive computing, developing sensors, behaviour change, clinical trials, data linkage, and cohort studies.    

Digital health approaches at UCL are applied to a wide range of conditions and research areas, such as cardiovascular disease, mental health, dementia, addiction, cancer, infectious disease, sexual health, diabetes, wellbeing and fitness. 

IDH researchers and consortia have experience of working with clinicians, industry (from SMEs to global corporations), healthcare providers, patient groups, charities, and policy groups. Our case studies and projects show how UCL's digital health research has a wide-reaching impact on the world so far.
