Day 2 - 4 May

Theatre 3

11.00 - 12.30 Test Beds – Update and news from three of the test bed programmes

Frontline health and care workers test bed areas are pioneering and evaluating the use of novel combinations of interconnected devices such as wearable monitors, data analysis and ways of working which will help patients stay well and monitor their conditions themselves at home. Successful innovations will then be available for other parts of the country to adopt and adapt to the particular needs of their local populations.

The Test Beds participating in this session are:

Care City Innovation test bed

This promotes healthy ageing across a million- strong population in North East London

Lancashire and Cumbria Innovation Alliance (LCIA) test bed

Includes two New Care Model Vanguard sites, partners and a number of SMEs and social enterprises to support the frail elderly and people with long term conditions to remain well outside of hospital and avoid unnecessary admissions.

West of England test bed

This is the Digital Coach project led by West of England AHSN in partnership with Diabetes UK
