Join us for the launch of the Centre for Translational Informatics (CTI), an exciting new initiative led by the NIHR Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) at South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College London.
 
Aimed at facilitating digital innovation in mental health care, the CTI brings together advances in analytics, software development and implementation, pioneered by the NIHR Maudsley BRC, to drive forward improvements in the way that mental health is treated, and provide agile solutions to the challenges presented by the data revolution in healthcare – what we call ‘digital pragmatism’.  
 
Wearables, virtual reality, and other emerging technologies offer the potential to understand clinical disorders in unprecedented detail, and provide a powerful means to innovate in healthcare delivery. At the same time data security presents new challenges for patients and clinicians such as delivering opportunities for self -management and user research in a rapidly changing technological environment and within a climate of increasing economic austerity.
 
On Tuesday 7 June, 2016, we will be formally launching the CTI with an inspiring programme of interactive sessions, panel discussions and talks from a wide range of experts, from across academia, the digital industries and clinical organisations. Topics to be covered will include: security, wearables and data, user research, self-management, data visualisation, virtual reality, and much more. 
 
A programme for the day and event registration details can be found here.
