Health Services Researcher
Dr Chrysanthi Papoutsi is a health services researcher at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences. Her research interests lie in the interdisciplinary study of digital health and innovation; in the complex reconfiguration of health services to support groups such as older people and young adults; and in the use of technology and artificial intelligence to manage patient safety. Chrysanthi has considerable experience in using qualitative and ethnographic methods in diverse healthcare settings, such as care homes, acute care units and outpatient clinics. She also has methodological interests in the use and development of realist approaches in evidence synthesis and evaluation.
Chrysanthi is currently leading a case study on the re-configuration of epilepsy care through the use of new technologies, under the SCALS programme. She has also been awarded a Springboard – Health of the Public 2040 Fellowship by the Academy of Medical Sciences to carry out research on digital health for patient safety in epilepsy care. As part of the TOGETHER project looking to introduce group clinics for young adults in socio-economically deprived settings, she is applying realist approaches to review the literature in this area and evaluate the new service.
Recently completed projects at the University of Oxford include a realist review on interventions to improve antimicrobial prescribing for doctors-in-training. Prior to joining the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, she has carried out research and teaching at Imperial College London (CLAHRC Northwest London), at the Oxford Internet Institute and at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine.
Chrysanthi holds a BSc in Management Science and Technology from the Athens University of Economics and Business in Greece and an MSc in the Analysis, Design and Management of Information Systems from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She completed her doctoral studies in Information, Communication and the Social Sciences at the Oxford Internet Institute, University of Oxford. Her thesis involved a qualitative study of a technological integration project for the reconfiguration of HIV care.
