On the 15th of March we hosted a Connectathon. This event looked at how people experience technology in health and care - from the home to the health centre to the hospital. We imagined what kind of new experiences and services could be provided to help people, using new technologies. For example, what could happen if people have easy access to and ownership over their health & care data through a “personal data store” or “personal health record”? What if you could easily use health devices at home and you could allow healthcare professionals to view that information for your benefit? What would this look like, and in what situations would it be helpful?
