Join us for the Pitch-In webinar series

Join us for the Pitch-In webinar series

We are thrilled to be collaborating with the Pitch-In programme at the University of Sheffield to host a series of webinars throughout January and February, focusing on the need for technology to play an important and transformative role in the way that health care services are delivered.

These webinars are intended for anyone with an interest in commissioning, developing and delivering novel digital health interventions, or who wishes to gain a better understanding of the digital health landscape in the UK.

The sessions will be chaired by our CInO Dr Victoria Betton, and all include a panel of expert speakers including members of the team from Mindwave. The line-up of events includes:

Wed 27/01 10.00-11.30am – Session 1: “Discovery” of user needs in digital health: why bother?

Wed 03/02 10.00-11.30am – Session 2: Designing and developing digital health technologies: how to forge a partnership between academia, NHS and industry that really works.

Wed 10/02 10.00-11.30am – Session 3: Evidence and evaluation: how to design digital health tools with evaluation in mind and gather evidence of impact.

Wed 17/02 10.00-11.30am – Session 4: Onboarding and implementation: how to acquire and retain users of digital health technologies.

The webinar sessions are presented as a series to give a holistic overview of digital healthcare technology development. While each session is intended to be interesting and useful in its own right, we strongly encourage you to attend the whole series to get a full and rounded view of the development process.

Pitch-In (Promoting the Internet of Things via Collaboration between HEIs and Industry), sponsored by Research England’s Connecting Capability Fund, brings together the universities of Sheffield, Cambridge, Newcastle and Oxford to stimulate collaboration and knowledge exchange related to Internet of Things (IoT) technologies. IoT, and digital technology more widely, has the potential to influence many aspects of our health and social care systems and practices.
