How do we find people at risk of becoming mildly or moderately frail and what interventions, services or pathways need to be in place to manage someone’s physical or mental deterioration appropriately at home or in the community?

Frailty is a broad term that isn’t yet universally recognised as a condition with a full appreciation of what interventions or action should be taken when someone is scored with the electronic frailty index (https://www.england.nhs.uk/ourwork/ltc-op-eolc/older-people/frailty/supporting-resources-general-practice/).  Further information on frailty can also be reviewed here.

We are actively seeking proven digital innovations that improve the health of people in the region and raise the quality, efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness of delivering healthcare.
We are particularly interested to hear about innovations in the following categories:
  • Health maintenance - supporting people in maintaining their physical and mental wellbeing,
  • Prevention - alerting patients, carers or professionals when there are signs that things aren’t going well, and an intervention can prevent crises or emergencies
  • Access - providing more convenient and cost-effective ways for patients and professionals to interact. (e.g. remote monitoring or virtual consultations).
  • Learning and education - delivering information and knowledge to patients about their health or condition, or to professionals to support their continuous professional development
  • Pathways - providing tailored information to patients, carers and professionals on services to signpost people to the most appropriate place.  Ideally, this could be enhanced with real-time information about capacity.
  • Research - using digital tools to promote involvement in research & clinical trials, to streamline the capture of informed consent, and to capture research data more efficiently and conveniently.
  • Integration - tools that enable the secure, appropriate sharing of information between organisations (e.g. GPs and hospital clinicians) and sectors (e.g. NHS and Social Services) to allow patients to receive seamless care.
  • Data Visualisation - innovative ways of presenting information in a meaningful way to enable more informed decisions by patients and professionals.  This may involve aggregating data from different sources, reporting tools or graphic visualisations such as heat maps.
