The North West Coast Connected Health Ecosystem brings together partners from health and social care, industry, academia and patient organisations to focus on improving health across the North West Coast at the same time as generating economic benefits for the region, through the uptake and deployment of connected health solutions.   To register for this event please click here

 

What we want to achieve

 

The Ecosystem is being supported and enabled by the North West Coast Academic Health Science Network and the European Connected Health Alliance. It is part of the European Connected Health Alliance International Network of Connected Health Ecosystems.

For our 7th event, we are focussing on Apps in health and social care. There are now more than 100,000 apps on the iOS and Android app stores, double the market size of three years ago. It is forecasted the mobile health app market will have produced $26 billion in revenue by the end of 2017, up from $2.4 billion so far.

However uptake of Apps in health and social care settings has been piecemeal and opportunities to harness and use data, as well as motivating patients to improve their self-care and management, is not widely used. We are using this event to discuss some of the issues relating to commissioning and using Apps in patient populations, as well as showcasing a number of Apps which can deliver improved health outcomes for patients and citizens.

We have selected technologies that will be of real interest to commissioners and have seen uptake by other CCGs and communities.

We will also explore what clinicians and commissioners want and need from Apps to support new models of care and the social movement which is being created from cure to prevention through smart technologies.

Who should attend? 

 

Those with an interest in Connected Health looking for opportunities to engage with industry, academia and the healthcare sector including:

App Developers / CCG leads / Clinicians / Health and social care managers and leaders / Academic partners / Businesses / Patient representatives
