The Digital Health And Assistive Technology (DHAT) Research and Innovation hub was established in 2017. DHAT brings researchers from all disciplines wishing to collaborate in designing, developing, and evaluating novel healthcare technologies for and with stakeholders in the NHS and other care organisations.

The DHAT is working with Leeds City Council (LCC), Adult Services on collaborative projects. The DHAT hub provides horizon-scanning and objective technology assessment service for digital health and assistive technologies. The first two projects to emerge directly from the collaboration are the Care Home Digitisation project and the Digital Literacy project.
