Greater Manchester Connected Health Ecosystem: Deploying Digital Interventions in Care Homes – GM’s Response to Covid-19
The situation in care homes remains critical, with the battle against the coronavirus epidemic in North West care homes ongoing. The University of Manchester’s Digital Futures, Health Innovation Manchester and digital tech company Safe Steps discuss Greater Manchester’s response to Covid-19, and the latest innovation for care homes which will offer better visibility for clinicians and care workers on elderly residents who are at risk.
The event will present on the use of digital healthcare systems in Greater Manchester in response to Covid-19, and the development and roll-out of the Covid-19 symptoms tracker. We will also be showcasing the work of industry partners assisting us with digital health applications.
Online attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions to the panel of speakers as part of the event which will be chaired by Digital Futures Health and Care theme lead, Professor Niels Peek.
