The UCL Digital Health Festival welcomes proposals from UCL students. This is an opportunity for students at all levels to share their work. Prizes will be awarded for the best work at undergraduate, Master’s and doctoral level. We welcome empirical and theoretical research, and products (software and devices).

Digital health is the use of information and communications technologies to improve human health and wellbeing, be that at an individual or a population level, for patients or the general public, in the UK or globally. Technologies can include the Internet, mobile phones, apps, games, sensors, tracking technology, social media etc. We interpret “digital health” broadly and welcome submissions from any Faculty and any discipline.

Example of projects include:

  • Mobile phone app improving patients’ adherence to TB treatment;
  • Web game teaching kids about the importance of hygiene;
  • Web-based smoke cessation intervention, ICT-based questionnaire data collection for infection control surveillance;
  • Patients’ experiences of using social media;
  • GPS-based phone travel app advising on less-polluted commuting routes;
  • Twitter public health intervention increasing the awareness of safe sex among teenagers;
  • Gamification website encouraging patients engagement in hepatitis management;
  • Confidentiality and consent challenges with electronic patient records;
  • Policy analysis of Government plans in the area of e-health web interface design improving accessibility for the elderly;
  • Wi-fi based blood samples tracking system;
  • …and many, many others!

Submissions are welcome from anyone who is or was registered as a student during the calendar year of 2014. Students from other institutions are welcome if involved in a joint initiative with UCL.
