Mobile health offers cost-effective health care solutions using ever-expanding mobile technologies. It is closing distances, improving patient care and monitoring chronic diseases in real-time.
Innovative breakthrough care solutions help patients in chronic conditions such as elderly, to live independently by addressing their everyday needs by creating and delivering the highest standard of care.
Cloud computing is the most cost efficient method to use, maintain and upgrade big data in health-care. We offer expert solutions to help researchers and health-care providers with secure and reliable cloud services.
We provides leading expertise in the area of medical image analysis and visualisation to facilitate a translation change in support of computer-aided medical practice.
The Digital Health Hub is helping the world's best academics and researchers build successful digital health solutions for real-world applications. It represents an initiative to accelerate health innovations through SFU's partnership with Fraser Health, City of Surrey and many others within the emerging Surrey Innovation Boulevard. Innovation Boulevard, in its exciting development stages, encompasses a broad-based partnership of academic and health tech industry players in the region.
The most innovtive patient-centered advanced solutions will touch the life of the people we serve to make a better world to live!
"SFU, City of Surrey, and Fraser Health are quickly being recognized as leading the world in bringing new solutions to the health and economic challenges we face. The Digital Health Hub will serve as a major asset within the emerging health technology ecosystem for Innovation Boulevard" Dr. D'Arcy
Our mission is to be an international applied research and innovation leader in digital health solutions. We are a proud part of the "Innovation Boulevard" project which runs from the Surrey Memorial Hospital to SFU Surrey and the goal is to be the power engine and driving force for Fraser Health's vision of "Better Health.
