The other week, I gave a presentation at the Birmingham Science City Innovative Healthcare Working Group on the work that we are doing around the Smart City Roadmap workstream on Health and Social Care.
This is a starting point at outlining our strategic approach and highlighting some of the areas of work that we are already involved in and project areas that we are keen to shape further. This has been developed working in collaboration with a number of partners but in particular supported by Vicky Sargent, Boilerhouse, who is a member of the Smart City task and finish group supporting on health and wellbeing.
The presentation prompted some good discussion and initial areas to link to like the Healthy Villages initiative being led by Birmingham Community Healthcare NHS Trust. The plan is to form a small working group to start to develop these areas further and also join up some of the activities that the different members of the Innovative Healthcare Working Group are already involved in.
