The use of digital technology and the positive impact it makes to people’s lives never fails to amaze
me on both a personal and professional level. You don’t need to look far to see the difference it is
already making across WY&H in terms of driving efficiency and most importantly meeting people’s
information needs. A good example of this can be seen in the use of telehealth services with
residents at a Leeds care home. Telehealth enables people to talk directly to senior nurses and
doctors – to allow remote assessment of peoples’ condition. The technology also helps reduce the
need for hospital admissions as any potential health issues can be identified early and treated within
the care home where possible. Another example can be seen in the co-production and co-design of
UpBeat, an App developed in partnership with people who use mental health services, clinicians and
mHabitat. This App encourages people to self-manage their care, where possible, whilst
strengthening relationships between patients and clinicians.
