Digital Health and Innovation Network

Network Leads

Mihir Sheth, Dr Dilraj Kalsi

Background and Aims

The Digital Health and Innovation Network was launched in February 2022. It was born out of the intersection of Values-Based Practice (VBP), which balances the values of stakeholders to achieve patient-centered clinical decisions, and Need-Led Innovation (VBP), which balances the values of stakeholders to create user centered innovations. This network is focused on the intersection of these two disciplines in order to support Patient-Centred Healthcare Innovation. The aims of the DHIN are therefore to:
  • Support digital health and innovation that improves patient outcomes and experiences
  • Support digital health and innovation that empowers clinicians to provide patient centred care incorporating values-based practice
  • Promote collaboration between patients, clinicians, healthcare professionals, engineers, designers, computer scientists in bringing about innovation.


  • We run regular interactive webinars and events that explore how VBP and NLI can be leveraged to create innovations that add value to all stakeholders while keeping a core focus on improving patient outcomes and experiences.
  • Anyone and everyone is welcome at our events: patients, healthcare professionals, innovators, hospital managers, regulators, or anyone else with an interest in this space.
  • As the network grows, we will look to publish based on a collation of perspectives from the network
