The NHS Digital Academy is a blended learning programme for digital leaders and aspiring leaders in the health and care sector, including CCIOs and CIOs. The programme is sponsored by NHS England, and delivered by collaborators from Imperial College London and the University of Edinburgh.

As part of this, she developed and leads teaching on Citizen-Centred Digital Health, which covers consumer- and patient-facing innovations, issues for user-centred design and ethical dimensions of heath informatics. The programme was first launched in 2019.
Dr Pagliari previously founded and directed the MSc in Global eHealth at the University of Edinburgh (2014-21) and the MSc in Healthcare Informatics and MSc in Health Information Governance, delivered jointly with the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (2007-14).
