Greater Manchester has appointed a suite of suppliers to commence development of a next generation digital platform that will support the transformation of public services and empower people to take control over their own health, wellbeing and support.
The Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership (GMHSC Partnership) and the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) are working together to invest £7.5m in new technologies that support better ways of working and join up data from the many systems across public services.
The city region is now moving forward with plans to develop a suite of products that will make it easier, safer and quicker for professionals and citizens to access the right information, when and where they need it. The technology will first be developed and first used in the areas of dementia, frailty and health visiting. Better sharing of information between professionals will radically improve support for GM citizens.
The process is being overseen jointly by the GMCA and Salford Royal NHS Foundation Trust, part of the Northern Care Alliance, on behalf of the GMHSC Partnership.
