We are delighted to announce that our work with Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent ICS has been shortlisted in the 2023 HSJ Partnership Awards! We've been shortlisted in the 'Most Effective Contribution to Integrated Health and Care' category!
The aim of HN's 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 trial reduced average A&E admissions by 35%, with a 34% reduction in non-elective spells on average.
Dr Joachim Werr, Founder and Executive Chairman of HN said: “It is an honour to be shortlisted for the HSJ awards alongside Staffordshire & Stoke ICS, where we have implemented the AI technology developed during our time on the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator.”
Judges for the awards include NHS England director of strategy Ben Jupp, Bolton Foundation Trust Fiona Noden and Worcestershire Acute Hospitals Trust chief executive Matthew Hopkins. The awards will be held on Thursday, March 23, 2023 at Evolution London.
About the nominated project
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 recently spoke to Digital Health News alongside Mark England, HN CEO, about how the project works, the positive results that have come from it, challenges faced along the way and the exciting future plans for both Staffordshire ICS and HN.
