Our renewed sponsorship of the Dynamo North East Health Tech Cluster is aimed at building a peer-to-peer health tech network and at showcasing regional talent in this sector throughout 2022. Over the last year, the cluster has focused on developing digital solutions in automation and AI; patient and staff experience; and population health and access to the NHS for local SME’s. In 2022, the cluster will continue working collaboratively to tackle priority areas of unmet needs in health and social care in the North East of England, such as patient backlog and waiting lists.

After a first successful year, we are proud to renew our commitment and support to the Dynamo North East Health and Social Care Tech Cluster.

The health and social care tech cluster was founded by Dynamo North East with sponsorship from CGI in 2020 with the aim of building a peer-to-peer network supporting and showcasing the regional talent in the sector, while working collaboratively to develop and share best practice.

The cluster has more than 40 members, including industry solutions providers, as well as healthcare organisations such as the Great North Air Ambulance and NHS Business Services Authority, and representatives across academia from the regional universities and colleges.

Over the past year, the cluster has brought unique insight into the needs of the North East and North Cumbria ICS and how to address them through digital solutions; focusing on five key areas: automation and AI; patient and staff experience; population health, and access to the NHS for SMEs.

“We are thrilled to continue to support the great work of the Dynamo health tech cluster. The last year has been a fantastic experience setting the foundation of our work in the North East health sector. In planning for next year we are going to be bringing the best of CGI to address the health and care sector challenges of the region through Dynamo and the health tech cluster. We look forward to another year of working together.”

Kieren Lane, Director Consulting Services, Health and care for CGI in the North of England

 The next 12 months will focus on collaborative working across the group to tackle priority areas of unmet needs in health and social care, through the relationships that have been built over the last year with key regional groups such as the ICS Digital Strategy Group and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services (ADASS).

Patient backlog and waiting lists will be the first area to be explored during a time when the NHS is at breaking point.
