Dr Jiachen Hou worked as a co-investigator on the British Council Sponsored project titled BLESS U, Bandar Lampung Enhanced Smart-health Services with Smart Ubiquity, between 2017-2019. The aim of the project was to define a semantic smart service (3S) framework to model semantically the patient pathways and clinical processes including the delivery of associated information and the interactions between clinic, hospital and pharmacist.

(a) Smart Clinic Event on 37th March 2017 in Bradford

(b) Creative and Smart Healthcare of the Future on 31st May-1st June 2017 in London
