Biography

Dr. John Dinsmore is an Assistant Professor in Digital Integrated Care and the Health Innovation Lead/Deputy Director of the Trinity Centre for Practice and Healthcare Innovation (TCPHI) at Trinity College Dublin. His role involves building and leading teams to research and develop (R&D) technologies, services and practices in a wide range of healthcare areas, which include: . Proactive digital integrated care (including connected health) . Behavioural change and health technology use . Proactive chronic disease (including multi-morbidity) self-management and/or management . Ageing, patient empowerment and the use of health technologies . Digital health and service re-design . The adoption and use of home based health technologies With a background in health psychology Dr. Dinsmore seeks to combine understanding in the above areas to develop behavioural change frameworks to improve the adoption, sustainability and scalability of new technologies and services as part of an integrated, proactive ecosystem of healthcare. Dr. Dinsmore has secured significant competitive research funding as since joining TCD in 2011, promoting his work widely through international conferences, events, media and journal publications. Presently he is the Coordinator/PI of a H2020 project entitled ProACT, which will see the development of a proactive digital integrated care technology ecosystem to support multi-morbidity disease management (including detection of early onset cognitive decline/dementia) in an ageing population. The project involves 12 partners across 6 EU member states, with trial sites in Ireland, Belgium and Italy (please see: http://www.proact2020.eu). Other national, European and international research projects Dr. Dinsmore has been involved with include: DOCTRID ASSISTID (FP7), BREATHE (EU AAL CALL 5) and the Hegarty Fellow Programme with (Michigan State University (MSU)). Current and previous organisations Dr. Dinsmore has worked with include; IBM, Philips Healthcare, Intel Labs Europe, Designability, Tundstall Emergency Response, TSB Technologies, Treelogic, Kingston University London, The Queen's University of Belfast, The Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, Imperial College London, University of Ulster Jordanstown and the National University of Ireland Galway.

  • Title
    • ProACT (http://proact2020.eu - Dr. Dinsmore Project Coordinator)
  • Summary
    • Website: http://proact2020.eu ProACT (Integrated Technology Systems for ProACTive Patient Centred Care) is an EU-funded Horizon 2020 project in PHC-25-2015. ProACT targets Europe's 50 million multimorbid patients to proactively self-manage and offset the EU's annual €700 billion cost of chronic disease management. ProACT aims to develop and evaluate an ecosystem to integrate a wide variety of new and existing technologies to improve and advance home-based integrated care for older adults with multimorbidity, including associated co-morbidities. The ecosystem will connect four key care and support models central to understanding and implementing effective, continued and coordinated patient centric care (including self-management). These models are 1) homecare (including informal care); 2) hospital care; 3) community and social care and 4) social support networks. Trial sites in Ireland and Belgium will use Living Lab facilities to ensure co-design of ProACT technologies, and implement proof of concept trials involving national health services, patients and their formal and informal care networks. Clinical status information, therapies and activity tools will be deployed for the conditions of: chronic heart failure (CHF), diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Tools to support mild cognitive impairment and detect early onset dementia are included. Commercial potential will be validated during the project supported by a European feasibility study in Italy to assess the cultural and political determinants for adoption and scalability of the ecosystem.

  • Summary
    • ASSISTID (Assistive Technologies for people with Autism and Intellectual Disability) will promote research into the development and application of assistive technologies to enhance the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities and autism, their carers and families. ASSISTID is the first structured research programme of its kind in Europe and the most significant investment into assistive technologies research to date. Assistive Technologies refers to practical tools that can support the functional needs of people who experience difficulties associated with disability or ageing. The ASSISTID programme which will fund 40 post-doctoral fellows is co-funded by the European Commission and the charity RESPECT, and is coordinated by the DOCTRID Research Institute. The DOCTRID Research Institute includes the Daughters of Charity Disability Support Services, all of the universities on the island of Ireland, the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, and the US universities Michigan State University and the University of Massachusetts. This is the first time that all of the universities on the island of Ireland have joined together in an EU funded research consortium. Our team supports TCD engagement with the DOCTRID consortium in the programme
