The 7th meeting of the Yorkshire & Humber Digital Health & Wellbeing Ecosystem (#YHDigitalEco) will take place on Tuesday 11th July when its theme will be ‘Interoperability & Integration – shared records, data and applications for future partnership working.’

This latest Yorkshire & Humber Digital Health & Wellbeing Ecosystem meeting will take place in the City of Culture at The Royal Hotel, Hull HU1 3UF and has been organised by the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network in partnership with the ECHAlliance.

We welcome attendance from Yorkshire & Humber health and social care commissioners and providers, digital citizens, local authorities, commercial organisations and voluntary and community sector organisations.

Philippa Hedley-Takhar, Head of Investment & Partnerships at Yorkshire & Humber AHSN, said: “Infrastructure that enables enhanced information sharing and communication between organisations and individuals will be paramount to regional ambitions for future place-based healthcare.

“Integrated healthcare systems have the potential to improve efficiency and effectiveness of health and social care services and, importantly, the ways in which citizens are empowered to take care of their own health and wellbeing.”

The Yorkshire & Humber Digital Health & Wellbeing Ecosystem meeting will start with updates from NHS Digital and NHS England on national activity and these will be followed by themed workshops:

·        Let's make a patient owned electronic record a reality - led by representatives from Humber, Coast and Vale STP. Humber, Coast and Vale STP partners are seeking to improve the quality of care for patients and their carers and enable them to own their electronic patient record.  How can technology suppliers provide the capability; patients provide the insight and health and social care professionals provide the framework to make a Humber, Coast and Vale shared record?  The output from this workshop will form the starting point for the Humber, Coast and Vale STP shared record programme.

·        How can digital platforms enhance Mental Health services? This will be led by representatives from South Yorkshire & Bassetlaw STP and will focus on how systems that better support joined up healthcare can improve services for people with mental health problems, including how information and treatment can be accessed, shared and managed by the patient. It provides an opportunity to be involved in shaping what patient centred management systems for people with mental health problems will look like over the next five years

·        Co-producing a place-based digital maturity improvement tool led by Dai Roberts of Greater Manchester AHSN. This workshop is an opportunity to be involved in the co-production of an improvement tool commissioned by NHS England. The tool aims to help local places, including STPs, to consider how they can develop their use of digital technologies to improve outcomes and the experience of citizens. It focuses on understanding the real world experience of local people, professionals and industry.
