Greater Manchester Connected Health Ecosystem

February 10 @ 2:00 pm 6:00 pm

The next GM Connected Health Ecosystem will be held virtually on Thursday 10th February 2022, 13.00 – 15.00 UK time on the topic of “How the Pandemic has Sparked Innovations and New Partnerships”.

The pandemic has impacted nearly every aspect of lives and has turned most industries and organisations upside down amidst the threat from COVID-19. However, in times of uncertainty comes the opportunity to innovate, deliver new ways of working and achieve long-lasting change beyond the immediate challenges presented by the pandemic.

Health and care is no exception and innovation has been at the heart of how Greater Manchester has managed the demands placed on it due to the pandemic – whether this is through the use of new digital technology to manage demand on services, or forging new partnerships between clinical, academic and industry worlds.

The latest in our series of events will explore these themes and demonstrate some of new innovations and partnerships that have been created during the pandemic that will deliver long-lasting change to our ecosystem.
