This event focused on sharing the learning coming out of the multidisciplinary community providers (MCPs) and primary and acute care systems (PACS) new care model vanguards. It looked at what is working well and what can be replicated in other areas around the United Kingdom.
In a packed session on sharing the learning, CEO and founder, Dr Rupert Dunbar-Rees spoke alongside Dr Cath Briggs, Stockport Together’s Clinical Lead about the development of Stockport Together’s Outcomes Framework. They discussed what we’ve learnt by working on the Stockport Together programme – a project to create better health and care outcomes for the people of Stockport, including a detailed view of whole-population segmentation in Stockport, and the approach to outcome selection and baselining.

In March, OBH attended a roundtable hosted by the Digital Catapult. Attendees were senior industry leaders, entrepreneurs, and commentators on private medical insurance and financial products in the UK supporting digital health and care to debate:
- barriers to innovation
- factors that might boost market development
- conditions necessary for the UK to play a leading role in digital health and care
Why should you be interested in digital health?
- digital health and care can allow people to control their health by using their own data to prevent disease or manage conditions
- it is in our best interest to encourage this shift to prevention and monitoring so that we can help people stay healthy and reduce the costs of health and social care
