The Digital Health Passport team was approached by the Greater Manchester Strategic Clinical Network. This followed an extensive piece of research into the needs of Children & Young People in their area which identified an asthma care plan app as an important part of a strategy to reduce Emergency Department visits.

The Greater Manchester project has received Evidence Generation funding from the Innovation & Technology Payment and is well supported by the regional leadership team and the local Academic and Health Science Network.

The integration plan with the GM Local Health & Care Record (LHCR) is amongst the most advanced in the country and involves evaluating the use of Solid PODs (Personally Owned Datastores).

The focus for the project is to demonstrate interoperability by sharing digital care plans between primary care, patients and the Local Health & Care Record.

The project will be evaluated and overseen by Health Innovation Manchester.

Goals

  • Connect to Greater Manchester LHCR using NHS login
  • Customise the Digital Health Passport to the local environment
  • Demonstrate evidence of improved Patient Activation Measures in young asthmatic population
