The LUCT looks like an excellent tool with demonstrable benefits for patients with this long term condition. It would be helpful to know how many patients were included in the pilot study - it supports person centred care and it would  be interesting to establish  from patients their satisfaction scores with consultations with and without the LUCT

HI folks... its another of these, and personally i dont like the.  whilst i can see that they are determined to keep the patient safe, they do so by disempowering them and that is not self care or person centred.  whilst it looks as good as any of its kind, the principle for self care has to e 'use it or lose it' not give everyone else assurance that the person can be left alonne 'safely' with triggers and warnings.  not the same thing.  sorry rally not a fan

Emailed as not appropriate to the campaign 
I have had a look at your submissions on Meridian and unfortunately the one submitted to the ITT campaign has had to be archived as this campaign is for innovations that are already accepted onto the tariff.  I have amended the campaign so this is clearer and we will be launching more campaigns around this as and when the calls go out. 
With regards to you other submission i have asked our Jo and Chris from industry gateway (copied) to have a look and someone will be in touch shortly to talk you through the process and discuss how you can make the best use of Meridian.  

By Tammy Holmes on 12/10/2017
I am still trying to identify what involvement we have already had with this - notes are on their initial innovation (
Online medical education platform (#2519))

I have amedned the campaign to state the campaign is only for things already on the ITT - once i have feedback from Helen/Pete i will contact the innovator with the way forward and advise that this innovation will not be published.

email to Josie from Chris 
Hi Josie
Good to talk with you today and I'm sorry I've had to pour cold water on your project.
As discussed there are a whole range of items that need to be addressed and considered before moving this forward with the NHS. 
Thus we will archive your Meridian submission until you are ready to move ahead.
If you would like to discuss any of the items we talked about or need links to specialist such as Regulatory Affairs consultants etc. please let me know and we will try to assist you.
May be look at the process and if it has the laboratory data and then clinical should the device and process be re designed so as to achieve an unequivocal results and remove any operational issues and possible problems - something like a inline dialysis machine. 
Have a look at this size of a small lazer printer uses a bag of saline (or did when I last saw it about 3 to 4 years ago) - perhaps it should be developed into something like this? But it is more complex, lots of safety features  built in and it had well proven science behind their process, so all they had to do was show it was performing to specification - but it is still only slowly growing in the UK and it allows patients to be independent and have dialysis at home on a regular basis free of the NHS. 
Good luck but this may be a long journey that may/will need to be well stage gated to achieve certain key markers and evidence on the road to create a NHS ready product .
PS Could you please confirm your UK address so that I can log your enquiry - Rosevale, Camp Road, Sudbrook, Caldicot, Gwent NP26 5TE 
(I have an old school friend that lives in Undy, Caldicot not so far away - small world)

Hi This is a local company working with North West Coast AHSN - As this is a disruptive tech to move sleep diagnostics to GP's as opposed to referals and waiting to be seen and then getting a slot at a clinic - Thus after using this monitor following the results the patient can be treated or where required relevant cases can go forward to Sleep Clinics and thus shortening diagnosis and possible intervention/treatment from months to days  - This may be one to discuss at MIC meetings with STP's - Lucy is reviewing this. 
There is another project using this technology for Mental Health and Children - We are awaiting info prior to relaying to Neil and Sarah A - if it stacks up it might have great/large impact clinically, economicly and socially - fingers crossed!

Already worked on this offline, some information and suggestions to consider going forward: 

RJAH and BCMHfT are also working with the company to look at the potential to trial the app within the organsiation.

Places to approach/commissioning 

Looking after the workforce is the responsibility of each NHS/social care organisation- so a CCG wouldn't commission that as a local health service. So each Trust will have its own occupational health system.
In primary care, practices/pharmacies/dentists/optometrists etc are self employed. I think NHSE does commission sub-regional occ health for independent contractors- but I think that's more for when there are external concerns about individual practitioners. From memory, I think there's a Telford based occ health service commissioned by NHSE -but that might be different now that NHSE/CCGs have co-commissioning of primary care in place. But worth asking if Telford occ health (?local community trust runs it?) is provider; and if they are your connection

I have just finished reading 'Zen and the art of Appreciative Inquiry' (Roger Rowett, 2013 published by Amazon) and am booked in for a two day AI facilitation course next week . (The book is very readable but I didn't really 'get it' until chapter 3 when the theory underpinning it was explored; then I was gripped!).  

The AI approach seems to be a very good way of learning from some of the excellence reporting  (there is good evidence of it being used in the NHS for a number of topics relevant to my line of work).  I like the approach since it seems to generate actions without digging into 'the problem' - seeing 'the glass half full' approach appeals to me!

Our idea is for some of the excellence reporting to be explored further using the AI approach (for example a nomination for getting a challenging patient home ....Imagine we are one year in the future and have just won a HSJ award for the patient-centred way we discharge our elderly patients.  What would that look like? What would be happening in the organisation and how would people be behaving?)

Sorry I missed this with being away and I had not copied my original meeting notes for Jo to read before hand.
Once he had completed a Meridian submission and looked at a series of items I indicated the next step would be to speak with Neil - it may appear he forgot this bit when he spoke with Jo. 
Thus before any mass marketing of this I think Neil may need to take a look at some aspects of it - it appears to have potential but there are parts that need to be sorted e.g. Info Gov but also some practical bits on the various views that different users may wish to have and how it displays and links people with issues in a graphic sense so that you can see who may need to looked after when various issues are identified.
Depending on the risk or referral tool I think there are a number of items that need to be considered/addressed her to ensure safe guarding etc. as would allow to step out of organisations to private therapists etc. - Thus I would like Neil to review and see if he is of a similar thoughts especially as Darren is considering this for use in Mental Health and multi agency use. 
Great ideas and need/demand I'm sure and thus may have great potential but for the company and others it must be right. From the North MIC the risk identification tool may be something the STP/public health may wish to use although it may need new risk maps to facilitate this.  
Like many companies he is seeking funds and this is in part down to his current business model and thus his urgency for it to be publicised.   
From the little I was told (not seen it in action!) it appears to have potential to possible great potential, but I think it may need reconsidering and possibly re-engineering to achieve its potential and what it is promised to do, especially for the entities he wishes to access. i.e. security and data storage protocols etc. 
I'm sending my notes to Neil for review so he can advise us all on next actions.

Jo Mewis
I've worked with Darren Wright at Inside Outcomes (Serendip tenant) on his Meridian submission for Risk Tracker: Outcome measurement in preventative services -
Darren is asking for WMAHSN's help to publicise Risk Tracker, a free software tool (under open license) to organisations providing preventative services to record their work & demonstrate success.
Risk Tracker measures the impact of organisations against national outcome frameworks, supporting them to translate the things they do into the outcomes that commissioning bodies are measured against. With a good understanding of how a service is currently operating commissioners can identify potential opportunities for innovation and improvement, or recognise where services may need to be decommissioned.
"We would like WMAHSN to help to scale up Risk Tracker across the WM region. It is provided free of charge under an open license & users can run it in any way they want, even adapt the code for their own uses. By using WMAHSN’s network to promote this opportunity, WM commissioners can develop service specifications that focus on paying for services which produce improved outcomes for patients rather than reimbursing providers for activity."
Thanks for your help, Jo

By Chris Dyke on 09/10/2017
Hi  I had a number of questions on his products and offered a series of things he may wish to do or should tackle and suggested he speak with Niel as soon as he'd completed a Meridian submission - I will send an abrevieated version to the AHSN team especially Niel as I think there is an element he may wish to look at or comment on with Darren before progressing this and his other product for use in a NHS or public sector. i.e. he doesn't wish to go to IGSoc or N3 until he knows there is a NHS contract/work. Also concerned on Open source usage and possible abuse by others. But in essance an interesting idea and may also facilitate / assist with items of risk (over time) that were sort of surfacing at North MIC meeting. 
By Joanne Mewis on 06/10/2017
Re-wrote and uploaded new submission after Darren Wright confirmed OK, emailed back to tell him I've uploaded it and it's now published - Hi Jo,Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.I've been through your version and compared it with my initial submission. Thanks, I agree with all of the things you've changed. It definitely makes it sound more of a compelling product rather than a description of what it does.Thanks for that. What's the next step?Many thanks Darren

In addition our systems allow greater in house ownership than traditional LIMS. We've also got (from feedback from the market) easier integration options and better software flexibility. I'd say some of these are the key differentiation points. Our references are critical, with a great base of endorsements from existing users. 

I'd be interested to hear your thoughts and feedback.

There are already several LIMs on the market.  How will you influence organisations to consider yours alongside those that are already established?

Not sure about the quote "Information stored on an Amazon Web Server (AWS) that meets UK Government Standards on data security" in the attached brochure - but read and rated so can the next to rate it also publish it please, thanks, Jo

By Neil Mortimer on 24/07/2017
AWS is used as a secure platform by some approved tools, so that looks solid, but doesn't necessarily cover all the IG bases.  AWS ensures data are stored securely, but there's always a risk at 'end points'; I.e. The user's computer or iPad, the login system and the operator's computer.

I'll make contact & follow up.

They haven't read the campaign as Lucy asked for "Please answer each question in brief manner (e.g. around 200 words per question) capturing the key information utilising the following word document that can then be uploaded to Meridian once completed" - I've rated but we may need to go back to them and ask for the word document - what do you think people?

Hi Tony
Just a small poiint about your elevator pitch - do you really mean to "prevent mental health"?  Perhaps it should refer to preventing mental ill-health?  Great idea btw, I wish you every success
