The Digital Health & Care Institute (DHI) is a leading centre for creative collaboration that focuses on improving the provision of health and care in Scotland. At The Innovation School’s campuses in the Highlands and Glasgow, the DHI uses design methodologies to develop innovative concepts to reimagine the future of digital across health and wellbeing.
DHI is one of eight Innovation Centres funded by the Scottish Funding Council, which supports transformational collaboration between universities and businesses. Operated as a partnership between The Glasgow School of Art and The University of Strathclyde, DHI is uniquely placed to create opportunities to connect academics with designers, healthcare providers, SMEs, charities and other key stakeholders.
Researchers at The Innovation School work on developing new service models, delivery pathways and digital solutions that could change the way healthcare is delivered in Scotland. The school’s excellence in teaching and delivering participatory design provides the foundation for a diverse portfolio of projects based on real-life experiences, each using co-design methodologies to identify opportunities for future improvement.
