The eHealth Cluster is delighted to be part of the Liverpool 5G Testbed being led by Sensor City. This gives us the opportunity to build on our work with Liverpool City Council over the past year supporting the introduction of IoT technology into Home Care services under the Stop and Go project. We are facilitating collaboration across technology, health and social care sectors to ensure that the focus is not only the technology but also the adoption and integration within health and care services.
We are working with The Liverpool 5G consortium (Blu Wireless Technology, AIMES, Inventya, DefProc, Digital Creativity in Disability, CGA Simulation, Sensor City, Liverpool City Council, RLBUHT, Liverpool University, and Liverpool John Moore’s University), who bring dynamic experience from academic, health, wireless, emerging and computer technology sectors, to create exciting opportunities for future Social Care and Health services. Liverpool is the only Health and Social Care pilot site in the programme – a real opportunity for Health and Social Care Services in the city.
We will be very busy over the next 9 months supporting the pilot by assessing new products/services, supporting the engagement of care providers and service users, and evaluating the impact of the trial. We are keen to get cluster members involved and have already engaged the Liverpool Home Care CIC in the pilot.
If you are interested in getting involved, please contact us and if you are interested in becoming a member you can download our membership form here, complete and email it to us. It is an exciting time for the cluster as we are demonstrating how the cluster model can support the delivery of projects by creating real impact on the delivery of local health and social care services.
