Care for patients with multimorbid chronic conditions could be transformed by a new cloud infrastructure to be developed at the University of Warwick’s Institute of Digital Healthcare based at WMG, as part of a European project.
The system called C3-Cloud, which is led by the Institute of Digital Healthcare aims to transform current care models which are mostly fragmented, addressing chronic conditions in isolation. The researchers have been awarded EUR 5 Million to lead pilots of the system in three countries. Funded by EU Horizon 2020, 12 partners in seven countries are combining their expertise to improve care provided to patients with multimorbidity.
On 27 March, Sarah Lim Choi Keung participated in her role as STEM Ambassador with STEMNET, in a Career Fair for Year 11 students at the Kenilworth School and Sixth Form, representing the Institute of Digital Healthcare and talking to students about the different areas of work she is involved in.
The Careers Fair was organised for 270 Year 11 students with over 30 employers/occupations/training providers involved, including the Institute of Digital Healthcare, WMG Academy, Warwick Medical School and Jaguar Land Rover.
Professor Christopher James has been appointed as the Editor in Chief of The IET's new publication ‘Healthcare Technology Letters’ to be launched in early 2014.
