Some 60 attendees from across the Greater Manchester Health & Social Care landscape attended the last meeting of the GM Connected Health Ecosystem. The morning session at MSP Citylabs saw presentations from a range of organisations and experts in the field of healthcare informatics and data sharing. Datawell – GMs innovative data sharing platform – is rolling out across the region, allowing NHS Foundation Trusts and CCGs to share records across organisational boundaries, and forms a central part of the wider GM Connect initiative to enable greater sharing of public information to help develop better services.

There was an update on the Trusted Research Environment being enabled by the Connected Health Cities programme; the value and importance of data in delivering healthcare innovation from the perspective of Salford Royal Group (one of the 12 NHS Digital Exemplars); and an expert overview of the legalities surrounding data sharing from DAC Beachcroft LLP. The Ecosystem also heard from Health Innovation Manchester, and the ‘pipeline for innovation’ being developed by this programme.
