Timothy Bonnici

Timothy Bonnici is a researcher and Consultant Intensive Care Physician at UCLH. His research interest is working at the intersection of clinical medicine, biomedical engineering and human factors to improve the detection and management of the acutely deteriorating inpatient. His PhD research, undertaken at St Thomas’ Hospital (KCL) and the John Radcliffe Hospital (University of Oxford), examined how wearable monitors, allied with signal processing and machine learning algorithms could be used to identify deteriorating ward patients. During this period, working with a multidisciplinary team of biomedical engineers, computer scientists, human factors specialists and clinicians he co-invented SEND, a digital vital signs charting system designed to be intuitive and highly usable and took it through the process of regulatory approvals and commercialisation. SEND has been cited in numerous NHS and government reports as an example of high quality NHS Innovation. Currently he co-leads of the INFORM project, a UCLH Charity funded initiative which is building EMAP, a real-time platform for translating data-driven products from idea to product available at the bedside.
