Innovation and collaboration across health and care

18/06/18

Industry voice: From virtual fracture clinics to managing vulnerable patient data through a 'hub' in the home, Helena Zaum, CityNext lead at Microsoft, says that today's practical tools and platforms are fuelling innovation and collaboration across health and care

Smooth transitions between treatment in the NHS and care in the wider community are essential if we are to meet the needs of our elderly and the vulnerable, says Zaum. Key to this will be empowering both carers and the cared for with the digital tools that can help people stay well and independent at home for longer. Zaum outlines the technologies and platforms along with innovative examples in health and care from her team's CityNext vision: Smart Places & Connected Communities
