Dr. Harvey researches and supports academic and applied teams in the development, trialing and adoption of health technologies and organizational innovations. Since completing his doctorate in 1999, Ian has been working with researchers in universities, non-profits, governmental agencies and industry in Europe, the USA, China, Canada, and Australia. Ian is currently working with SDSU researchers to use US based grants to quickly and cost effectively collect primary and secondary patient data from the UK as part of SDSU run projects.
Ian has completed large scale multi-centre clinical trials in cancer, cardiology, radiology and gerontology. Applied research includes work in public health and many clinical specialties, and he has a particular interest in behavioral approaches, AI, biotechnology and diagnostics. Funding secured for contracting organizations as a result of his work has totaled some $152.1m to date.
Recent work has centered on frailty, multi-agency falls prevention strategies, self-care for chronic diseases such as diabetes, and preventative outreach to Somalian populations. Ian has a special interest in using AI driven community AR/VR/IR to embed public health into everyday life in a manner that strengthens human agency and social cohesion.
Ian is very familiar with the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) which entirely manages the healthcare of some 65m people and routinely collects extensive and high quality data on its population. As part of the UK’s industrial policy, the NHS provides an infrastructure and heavily subsidized support for research trials and the gathering of patient data for approved research projects, including those funded by U.S. government agencies, non-profits and companies.
