Researchers working in the Greater Manchester (GM) Connected Health City (CHC) showcased the latest findings from across the programme’s regional portfolio at a recent event.

Attended by over 100 delegates from a variety of clinical, academic and industry organisations, the event provided an opportunity for CHC to update regional stakeholders on the programme’s progress and impact to date.

Hosted at The Studio in Manchester’s Northern Quarter, the event was delivered in partnership with The University of Manchester’s Connected Health Ecosystem, Health Innovation Manchester and the ECH Alliance.

In addition to the project updates, the showcase also provided opportunities for those attending to network, identify areas of mutual interest and discuss potential collaboration opportunities with likeminded colleagues.

Along with updates from the GM CHC’s care pathway projects, those attending were able to contribute to a number of important discussions that could influence future data initiatives across the city.  Topics discussed included the replication of Learning Health Systems in other GM clinical pathways and horizon scanning of future innovation-led research initiatives.

Dr Zoher Kapacee, Operations Manager at the Greater Manchester Connected Health City said: “The Greater Manchester CHC is working in close partnership with the regions health and social care sector to ensure services are world leading when it comes to innovation and technology.

“The Ecosystem event provided a great opportunity to get everyone together, not only to update them on our progress but to ensure that as a city we are moving forward together in the best interests of local citizens”

Dan Morley, Business Engagement Manager at the Connected Health Ecosystem said: “Our members were first introduced to the GM CHC back in November 2016 and there was real interest and enthusiasm for the programme. We thought this was a timely opportunity to bring the members of the GM health and social care community back together and to update them on the innovative, data-intensive work taking place across our city.”
