We are working with patients, health workers, and industry to develop digital health innovations and accelerate their delivery to the health service.

We are pioneering research in electronic health records (EHR), underpinned by our Clinical Record Interactive Search (CRIS) system, an advanced EHR database with natural language processing capabilities, which allows researchers to access and analyse the health record securely and efficiently.  CRIS record linkages connect information from health records to other resources from within and outside healthcare, allowing wide-scale analysis of health determinants and outcomes.

Our CogStack and KConnect platforms provide advanced information retrieval and extraction and decision-making tools specifically designed for unlocking the information in the health record, and are already being piloted in several NHS Trusts.

In wearable technology, we are working with industry partners including Fitbit and Intel to explore how mobile devices and wearable fitness monitors could help to prevent relapse in schizophrenia (SleepSight) and depression, multiple sclerosis (MS) and epilepsy (RADAR-CNS).

We are developing customised online portals to empower patients and improve the quality of healthcare.  IMPARTS is an award-winning initiative to integrate mental and physical healthcare in research, training and clinical services, based on an innovative tablet-based screening system.  The PROTECT study of brain ageing uses an online recruitment and testing portal which has so far registered over 20,000 participants.  With King’s College London Addictions Department, we are creating a portal for collecting addiction recovery outcome data using a novel outcome measure developed at King’s.

In data visualisation & analytics, our patient timeline app allows clinicians to search and filter documents in EHRs quickly and accurately.  Our information retrieval and extraction platform CogStack implements best-of-breed enterprise search, natural language processing, analytics and visualisation technologies to unlock the health record and assist in clinical decision making and research.

People with lived experience of mental disorders are at the centre of all our work, and we are working with CWE (Citizens with Experience) solutions, who develop community-led projects in health and social care based on empathy, inclusion and sustainability.  Through a double lens approach of patient’s experience and clinician’s expertise, CWE spans boundaries to transcend issues and barriers that distance organisations from the people they care for.

These are just some of the projects we’re working on.  If you would like to collaborate with us, or would like to find out more about what we can do for you, please contact us.
