Focusing on the critical role patients, carers, students and graduates can play to address some of the challenges of successfully adopting eHealth that have been discussed in previous SWCoE Satellite Applications Catapult Health and Wellbeing seminars and EPIC project workshops. Highlighting good practice from local initiatives and those from outside of the county, participants will hear about and discuss their involvement in eHealth from three different perspectives:
(A) Helping patients use digital for health – voluntary and student support for patients in general practice, home, elsewhere to use the internet for health
(B) A test bed of patients in Cornwall to trial digital technologies
(C) Sustaining innovation in eHealth through patient and student input and initiative in collaborations with SMEs.
EVENT DELIVERY PARTNERS
This event is delivered in collaboration by the South West Satellite Applications Centre of Excellence Satellite Applications Catapult and the EPIC (EHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Project) and supported by Digital Leaders South West.
The SWCoESA draws on the commercial and academic strengths of the region focusing on three areas of Smart Specialisation: eHealth & Wellness in addition to Marine & Maritime and AgriTech. The programme identifies key areas of challenge within the e health sector and stimulates the application of current or potential satellite applications research strength to solution focused collaborations.
EPIC (EHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly) is a collaborative project partly funded by the European Regional Development Fund with additional financial support from the South West Academic Health Science Network. The University of Plymouth and partners aim to increase the use of technology in both health and social care hoping:
– to improve health and wellbeing of people in Cornwall
– and develop the Cornish economy in this sector.
The EPIC project started in May 2017 for three years.
Digital Leaders is a global initiative that has created a shared professional space for senior leadership from different sectors promoting effective, long-term digital transformation.
This event has been supported by funding provided by the European Regional Development Fund.
