Welcome to The Future of Healthcare Project

The “Future of Healthcare: Computerisation, Automation, and General Practice Services” project is a collaboration between the Oxford Internet Institute, the Oxford Department of Engineering Science, and the Oxford Martin School, at the University of Oxford.

The project seeks to understand the work tasks that occur in primary care, and to classify those tasks to inform machine learning and artificial intelligence models for probabilities of automating techniques. We emphasize understanding the role automation will play in primary care for both GP staff and patients, and how the different varieties of work that occur in the primary care setting will be augmented through automation.
