E-Health

 

Members of the Faculty undertake research into the development, adoption and consequences of innovative healthcare technologies. 

Although they are interested in a broad range of technologies, many of those they look at fall under the banner of e-health because they incorporate electronic processes and communication technology.  These include diagnostics, telehealth, information systems and applications of mobile technology.
