Manchester Ecosystem Gathering

12th July 2018

ECHAlliance Ecosystems

The discussion will focus 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 will be 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, we’ll be discussing 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.
