The Centre for Pervasive Healthcare (CfPH) is an interdisciplinary research centre dedicated to designing, developing, evaluating and understanding the usage of pervasive computer technologies for healthcare. The centre is composed of a multidisciplinary team of computer scientists, industrial designers, engineers and anthropologists.

In our projects we facilitate innovation by close cooperation with companies and by rooting the processes in user-centered, experimental, participatory development strategies, also referred to as “User-Driven Innovation”. Our projects typically have representatives from the clinical world (e.g. a hospital department), one or more private companies, and researchers.

A range of different healthcare domains are explored in our projects, ranging from telemedicine, hospital work, to accident response, surgery, assisted living, home care and self care.

 


Most of our current projects and activities are associated with the Pervasive Healthcare Lab at the Alexandra Institute. For more information about the lab, click here.

 

We are also deeply involved in 4S, which is an open source ecosystem for telemedicine providers and consumers. For more information about 4S, click here.
