Researchers from the Institute of Digital Healthcare (IDH) at WMG, University of Warwick propose that a new system called the Dovetail Digital consent application is favourable, and have analysed it in the paper Evaluation of patient perception towards dynamic health data sharing using blockchain based digital consent with the Dovetail digital consent application: A cross sectional exploratory, published in the journal Digital Health, SAGE Publications.
Researchers from the Institute of Digital Healthcare (IDH) at WMG are working with healthcare software experts at Dovetail Lab on ‘General Practice of the Future.
Dr Shiva Sathanandam of the Institute of Digital Healthcare (IDH) at The University of Warwick was a member of the panel during a debate and workshop that was chaired by David Brindle, Public Services Editor at The Guardian, held at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham on the 24th July 2012. The panel comprised of members of academia, industry and the NHS.
Dr Sathanandam said of the event “The way forward for integrated care plus telehealth is the careful application of evidence on patient outcomes, types of technology and their benefits in appropriate settings to inform decision making.”
The IDH is working with representatives from all areas of the community in order to develop and implement approaches that will contribute to the development of healthcare solutions that can be up-scaled to reach more patients and increase the benefit from the use of limited resources.
