HTN 100: Allscripts, Spirit Digital, Leicestershire and Health Data Research

Spirit Digital and Leicestershire Partnership Trust

The vision was to demonstrate how remote monitoring could play a crucial role in the growing problem of multi-morbidity.  The project was designed and implemented as a collaborative approach to create a flexible, secure real time health status data for individual patients through remote monitoring using CliniTouch Vie to give clinicians unprecedented real-time visibility of their most at-risk patients.

CliniTouch Vie demonstrated that the simple use of remote monitoring to create a virtual clinic delivered lowered NHS costs and improved clinical outcomes.  It facilitated earlier discharge, prevented admissions, reduced risk of future exacerbations and improved self-management through inbuilt education resources.

Health Data Research UK has announced a £3M funding

Health Data Research UK has announced a £3M funding competition for projects that will inform and shape the design and specification of the Digital Innovation Hub Programme: a UK-wide infrastructure for health data research and innovation.

Between six to eight ‘Sprint Exemplar Innovation Projects’ made up of academic, NHS and industry consortia will be funded through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to demonstrate real world examples of using health data in a responsible way to improve health and drive innovation across the UK.  They will establish “confidence in concept” of the Digital Innovation Hub Programme technology solutions and proof of readiness for research that will make game-changing improvements in the health of patients and populations and accelerate innovation in UK life sciences.

Allscripts recognised in KLAS report

The independent research, which tracks contract wins and the views of healthcare professionals about vendors and products, says Europe is “one of the most dynamic and competitive EMR markets in the world.” In this environment, Allscripts has gone from having one English customer for its Sunrise electronic patient record in 2011, to eight today.

KLAS reports that the five go-lives covered by its research “have progressed successfully”. It also summarises structured interviews with customers by saying: “Customers like the product and feel it is powerful and can do a lot. Customers are generally pleased with what they have achieved.”




HTN 100 is a 100 word challenge to help share health tech projects and learnings. In 100 words we want to hear about the technology you are using, the benefits, successes and tips. HTN 100 will be published every Friday!
