The Ecosystem works in conjunction with a number of key strategic partners across the Health & Social Care spectrum to deliver this, such as the GM Academic Health Science Network (GMAHSN), Manchester Academic Health Science Centre (MAHSC), Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) Councils, NHS England, Foundation Trust hospitals, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Industry.
The aim of the Ecosystem is to create a collaborative, innovation-friendly environment to enable all members to benefit from the rapidly expanding connected health marketplace, and the opportunities afforded by the devolution of Greater Manchester’s £6bn health and social care budget.
With a large and diverse membership across academia, the NHS, industry, Public Health & local government, the Ecosystem can potentially benefit participants in a number of ways:
Health and Social Care Commissioner & Provider Organisations
Research & Academia
Patient Groups, Third Sector & Charity Organisations
