Data Sharing for Better Healthcare

JULY ECOSYSTEM 2018: Data Sharing for Better Healthcare

MSP Citylabs, Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9NQ

The July 2018 meeting of the GM Connected Health Ecosystem took place on Thursday 12th July at MSP Citylabs.

The discussion focussed on the recent awarding of Local Health & Care Record Exemplar (LHCRE) status to Greater Manchester by NHS England. The £7.5m award will help further strengthen the work being undertaken to develop integrated care records across GM and better sharing of information.

An overview of LHCRE was provided by Stephen Dobson, Interim Chief Digital Officer, GM Health & Social Care Partnership, followed by presentations and discussion from locality based leads from Wigan & Bolton on their experiences of data sharing across organisations.

In addition, there were discussions surrounding Trusted Research Environments, the opportunities and challenges of data sharing in healthcare, together with hearing from Health Innovation Manchester & NICE on the latest developments on the GM Innovation Hub and mapping our digital health assets.
