NHS Liverpool CCG is working with a wide range of partners to progress its smart health and care agenda including:

  • eHealth Cluster - Developing and deploying effective, innovative products and services is complex and cuts across sectors. Success requires diversity of stakeholders.

To support innovation and growth in health, new ways of working together, making the most of local, fantastic resources and expertise is required – and that’s where Liverpool City Region eHealth Cluster comes in.

The eHealth Cluster Ltd is the only SME-led eHealth Cluster in the UK. It allows NHS Trusts and CCGs to engage effectively with local SMEs through collaborative cluster working. We believe in:

  • collaboration
  • being creative
  • responding to need and expectation
  • supporting industry

At the heart of the eHealth Cluster is a collaboration framework supporting a community of like-minded industry partners, health and care practitioners, academics and citizens. The eHealth Cluster offers NHS organisations a platform for dialogue, problem solving, partnership and sharing to:

  • increase the productivity of Cluster members,
  • drive innovation in health social care and community services,
  • stimulate LCR economic growth

LCR eHealth Cluster is a collaboration of resources and competences that has reached a critical threshold to give its’ members a key position in the field of health and care innovation. By bringing together very different worlds, it helps members to work out the best ways to work collaboratively. It makes it easier for commissioners to map and find out what technology and IPs are being developed; It enables technology companies to work more effectively with healthcare professionals, responding to real needs and issues; and it helps citizens impart their valuable perspective and experience to help develop the innovative approaches to service delivery and practice.

The collaboration stimulated by eHealth Cluster has given a sustainable competitive advantage to LCR. Local NHS Trusts have been showcased across Europe through the cluster.

SS has designed and deliverers short, practical training courses to upskill attendees to enable them to return to their places of work/communities and continue to spread awareness of how to practically use technology and online resources to improve and manage their own health. All people trained are called Health Activators, by attending the courses they are upskilled (activated) and they go on and activate others, this has a ripple effect and spreads the knowledge and practical skills of how to improve self-care.
