Harrogate medtech firm partners with North East NHS trusts
A Harrogate digital healthcare firm has partnered with NHS organisations across the North East and North Cumbria to use its technology to improve patient care.
Inhealthcare, which specialises in digital health and remote patient monitoring, has secured a three year licensing contract with six NHS organisations in the North East, led by the Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
The contract will see the continued rollout of a series of digital programmes known as ‘Health Call’, developed jointly by Inhealthcare and the trusts.
Bryn Sage, chief executive of Inhealthcare, said: “The region’s long-term commitment is an important milestone for Inhealthcare and follows our successful launch in London at the start of the year.”
“We have worked closely with NHS providers in the North East of England over the last seven years and believe the region is at the cutting edge of collaboration and innovation in the NHS.”
Graham King, chief information officer at the Newcastle Hospitals, explained: “Patients are increasingly demanding the ability to interact with their personal health and care records through digital applications and services.
“In order to meet this demand six NHS organisations collaborated to create Health Call, an innovative digital platform that allows tailored personalised services to be created for our patients, delivered through our clinical and digital teams, working together.”
