Connected health technologies and informatics

Leads: Professor John Ainsworth

The potential for mobile and ubiquitous technologies to gather data that can be used to better characterise dementia remains largely untapped.

Similarly, there is great potential to assemble data, and data analysis methods, from multiple sources into a critical mass of dementia research.

The underpinning informatics methodology to achieve this is a major strength at Manchester, and we are actively involved in harnessing electronic health record data to enable dementia-related research, including complex modelling to identify novel multi-morbid patterns of disease risk and treatment outcome.
