Senior Researcher

Dr Chrysanthi Papoutsi is a senior 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. She has been using qualitative and ethnographic methods in research across health and care settings, such as care homes, acute care units, outpatient clinics and GP surgeries. 

Chrysanthi is currently leading the qualitative evaluation of the NHS App, a digital 'front door' to the NHS rolled out nationally in England. She is also leading research on group consultations, a new model of care bringing patients together to harness lived experiences and expertise. This involves group consultations delivered online over video in the context of Covid-19 in primary care (study funded by the Health Foundation), as well as face-to-face group consultations in secondary care for young adults living with diabetes in socio-economically deprived settings (study funded by the NIHR HS&DR). Chrysanthi has also recently completed a project on the re-configuration of epilepsy care through the use of new technologies, under the SCALS programme. She has previous experience as PI and co-Investigator in several interdisciplinary projects funded by the National Institute for Health Research, the Health Foundation, the Medical Research Council, Research England and the Academy of Medical Sciences. 

Chrysanthi is leading the Technological Innovation and Digital Health module on the MSc in Translational Health Sciences. She also teaches other courses at postgraduate level, including on evidence synthesis, social theory, complexity and spread and scale-up of innovations. She supervises DPhil, MSc and undergraduate students on topics related to the introduction of new technologies and service innovations.

Prior to joining the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, she held research and teaching positions at Imperial College London, the Oxford Internet Institute and 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 a 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.
