The NHS in North West London is preparing to roll out a series of digital technologies in a bid to improve access to health and care services.
Inhealthcare, which works in digital health and remote patient monitoring, has signed an agreement with the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups. It is hoped the agreement will allow the health service to work more efficiently and cost effectively.
Kwesi Afful, innovation lead at the North West London Collaboration of Clinical Commissioning Groups, said: “We have been looking for a solution which will enable digital innovation among our clinical colleagues so that patients can benefit from the latest digital tools.
“We are excited about this collaboration with Inheathcare and believe that it will help us deliver cutting-edge services and solutions to help improve health and wellbeing across NW London.”
Inhealthcare will develop digital services that include apps and equipment with the aim of the NHS offering targeted and personalised care, as well as connection to health and care systems and patient records.
Bryn Sage, chief executive of Inhealthcare, said: “Our technology will give people the choice of safe and convenient access to health and care services, making it easier for clinicians to communicate directly with patients and help to reduce pressure on GP surgeries and outpatient clinics.
“Services will be available to virtually everyone via telephone landline as well as smartphone, tablet and desktop computers.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be working across such a large part of London, this is a major milestone for Inhealthcare.”
