Following on from the first EPSRC Mathematics in Healthcare Centres workshop held in Glasgow in September 2018, the CMIH hosted the Achieving Impact in Healthcare workshop that focused on translating mathematical research into beneficial healthcare technologies and engaging both clinicians and industry.

The two-day programme featured talks from all five Centres. The themes of ‘Clinical Support Systems’, ‘Population Medicine ’ and ‘Mathematical Challenges” were explored in group discussion sessions. Talks covered a range of topics, including cross-methodology challenges for specific disease groups, cross-disease challenges for specific methodologies and machine learning customised for medical imaging.

Of interest to clinicians, researchers and technologists, this workshop looked also at scoping a proposal for a future research programme on the Mathematics of Healthcare at the Isaac Newton Institute.
