Virtual Digital Health Kick Off -seminar
Digital Health (DigiHealth) research programme is part of the University of Oulu’s national profiling actions, and it is jointly funded by the Academy of Finland and University of Oulu. The primary aim of DigiHealth is to develop and validate novel digital technologies for data-driven health applications. The programme’s focus is crucial as novel technologies and technological solutions (e.g., artificial intelligence, internet of things, virtual/augmented/mixed reality, robotics, 5G/6G) are becoming more intelligent, invisible and ubiquitous to be utilized for data-driven health applications. DigiHealth aims to promote all research of the University of Oulu focusing on Digital Health solutions. The ultimate impact and aim of DigiHealth is to make health and wellbeing services accessible to everyone regardless of time or place.
