At HTN this week, we welcomed a fantastic group of speakers to our online primary care conference, covered news from NHS Sussex on the use of data and business intelligent tools, a patient video series launched by NHS England and Improvement, and lots more.
Here’s our round-up of the rest of the headlines from across health tech…
System launched for ongoing provision of free PPE
The Department of Health and Social Care has announced the launch of a new online system, building on from a previous personal protective equipment (PPE) portal used to distribute 6 billion items.
The new online platform has been developed following feedback from users of the previous system, and is said to be ‘more user-friendly’, whilst introducing new functionality such as the ability to track orders.
Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership has gone live with a communications solution from Granicus, for email marketing campaigns.
The platform is being introduced with an aim to help the service engage with its subscriber base on relevant health and social care topics — with campaigns targeted to staff, stakeholders, and partners in the community.
James Sharp, Digital Media and Marketing Manager at Mid and South Essex Health and Care Partnership, commented: “We wanted to engage with a wider demographic amongst our residents by offering them a choice of how they wanted to be communicated with; whether that’s by email, website or mobile notification.”
Kooth partners with myGP
Kooth, a digital mental health provider, has partnered with myGP, developed by iPlato.
The collaboration between the two services will offer NHS patients using iPlato’s myGP app the ability to self-refer to the Kooth digital mental health platform.
The suppliers are currently in pilot with the solution, ahead of a planned roll-out later this year.
