Connected Health Seminar Series

Connected Health at the University of Manchester brings together eHealth, covering digital processes in healthcare; and mHealth, which broadly enables these processes through the use of mobile, digital technologies.

We explore the potential for information and communication technologies to transform the delivery of health and social care through projects in areas such as self-care, integrated care, patient experience, and real- time monitoring.

Manchester Informatics pools the resources of a number of university departments, research centres and various other affiliated organisations working closely with organisations external to the University of Manchester ensuring that internationally leading research can be connected to the best industry or health and social care partners.
