Brainstorm of E-health Units Globally
E-Health Informatics Research Centre - University of Dundee
A consortium of 10 UK government and charity funders, led by the Medical Research Council (MRC), has made a historic £19 million investment to establish four e-health research Centres of Excellence in London, Manchester, Dundee and Swansea. The funding awards were announced today at the British Business Embassy’s life sciences summit at Lancaster House by the Minister for Universities and Science DavidWilletts. The Centres will open in late 2012 and will harness the wealth of UK electronic health records to improve patient care and public health.
The four Centres will investigate a wide range of conditions that place a huge burden on the UK population, including diabetes and obesity, cardiovascular disease, cancer and child and maternal health.
Electronic Health Research - University of Manchester
The Centre, led by Professor Iain Buchan, will produce new computer-based methods and tools, and apply them to five areas of innovation:
Helping patients to monitor their own health in daily life using mobile technologies such as smartphones, alongside records shared with GPs;
Helping the NHS to examine complex flows of patients in order to spot missed opportunities for earlier or better targeted care;
Giving researchers more powerful tools for identifying sub-groups of people who have different patterns of health that might illuminate new targets for treatment or prevention;
Enabling different research teams to collaborate across different organisations to produce more powerful and timely analyses of anonymised healthcare records;
Making clinical trials more efficient and more relevant to patients.

E-health is the transfer of health resources and health care by electronic means. It encompasses three main areas:
- The delivery of health information, for health professionals and health consumers, through the Internet and telecommunications.
- Using the power of IT and e-commerce to improve public health services, e.g. through the education and training of health workers.
- The use of e-commerce and e-business practices in health systems management.

This research project seeks to contribute to addressing new and emerging challenges (technological, scientific and human factors) in Health Informatics for the purpose of developing effective e-Health Systems and Technologies for the 21st century.
The goal is to develop a context-aware multimedia information system to support collaborative medical decision making in an e-Health environment. The project will seek to apply advanced techniques in context-aware and mobile computing and data mining to the analysis of diverse multimedia-based medical data, integrated with virtual healthcare services, for the purposes of enhancing collaborative medical decision-making, improving patient information management, and delivering healthcare services across geographical barriers.

There are three main streams of work:
- We develop and evaluate interventions for the public and patients – these include our work on alcohol (DownYourDrink), sexual health (Sexunzipped), heart disease (CHESS) and type 2 diabetes.

-We have an interest in implementation of e-health and new technology in health care systems. This stream includes work on the Normalisation Process Theory (NPM peer learning group) and led to the development of the e-Health Implementation Toolkit as part of an SDO-funded grant.

-Our third work stream focuses on understanding interactions between health care professionals and patients. This stream uses qualitative research methods alongside discourse analysis and conversation analysis to better understand interactions between clinicians and patients and the likely impact of e-health interventions.

The Global eHealth Unit is at the forefront of the introduction and implementation of IT innovation into health care systems. The UK has a leading position in the implementation of information and communication technology in healthcare. To realise the full potential of that position, we capitalise on local London, national and international opportunities for collaborative interdisciplinary cross-boundary research and innovation in eHealth.

E-health Unit Sotiria Hospital

The e-health unit is situated in the “Sotiria” 800 bed general public teaching hospital in Athens, as both a research and therapeutic unit for the implementation of emerging Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in everyday clinical practice. It was established as an initiative to modernize the previously offered rehabilitation services, with the aim of maintaining chronic patients with multiple morbidities at home by effective IT supervision and monitoring and also aiming to prevent disease exacerbations, reduce multiple hospital visits and admissions and support family carers. The services involve no extra costs for the users and target older people, the majority of whom are socially disadvantaged, demonstrating that the use of concurrent technology in clinical practice can effectively respond to the multiple needs of a very fragile population, by empowering them with the opportunity of equal access to high quality care.
