HN features in Digital Health: HN's work in Staffordshire reduces average A&E admissions by 35%

HN's work in Staffordshire has been published in the influential 'Digital Health' media outlet.

The aim of the trial in Staffordshire was to look at how existing patient data could be used to predict those most likely to attend A&E or need hospital care in the near future and intervene with targeted clinical coaching to reduce their dependence on A&E and GP services.

The project was led by Dr Paddy Hannigan, chair of the Stafford and Surround Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and clinical lead for Staffordshire & Stoke-on-Trent Integrated Care System (ICS) digital programme, who launched the trial with two of the six CCGs and three acute hospitals in 2016.

Dr Hannigan spoke to Digital Health News alongside Mark England, HN CEO, about how the project works, the positive results that have come from it, the challenges faced along the way, and the exciting future plans for both Staffordshire ICS and HN.
