Health Informatics @ Manchester Meeting, Faculty of Medical & Human Sciences
|Dates:||9 July 2012|
|Times:||14:30 - 17:00|
|What is it:||Seminar|
HI@M is a quarterly meeting that aims to bring together cross-disciplinary researchers with an interest in eHealth to share skills and encourage collaboration. Each meeting focuses on a specific theme that outlines the health problem and possible or example eHealth solutions. The meeting is formatted that we have some key speakers to present their work and stimulate discussion around the subject.
This meeting is to focus on the co-production observation with patients and the use of mobile technologies to enable this. This is a major theme in government thinking: the Information Strategy has signalled the empowerment of the patient by ‘Putting us all in control of the health and care information we need’. This was also one of the key themes in the recent HeRC proposal in which we will concentrate on the development of technologies for capturing patient reported outcomes and monitoring health status. The meeting agenda with brief speaker biographies can be seen below.
In addition, since we last met, we have set up a LinkedIn Group to support our group meetings and stimulate discussion beyond these. We would like to use this space as a ‘market-place’ where people can post questions; raise issues; or highlight potential areas of collaboration.
Come along and join us on 9th July and help shape the Health Informatics @ Manchester.
