Search for a digital innovation star
There are just days left to the application deadline for a digital innovation award sponsored by the Innovation Agency as part of a new regional learning campaign, ‘Learning Matters’.
The Learning Matters campaign is run by Health Education England and Voluntary Sector North West, bringing people together to share knowledge and increase understanding.
The digital innovation award is aimed at people who are championing and driving digital innovation, unlocking opportunities to improve healthcare in the region.
Nominees may be working in or with the health and care sector in the North West, who can share examples of digital innovation in action which is making a real difference to health or health services. The deadline is 10 April.
Dr Liz Mear, Chief Executive of the Innovation Agency, said: “We want to highlight individuals who have been successful at supporting digital innovation in health, particularly through shared learning. It could be a person or team who have helped themselves or others, through introducing new ways of working with or learning about digital innovation. We will be looking for examples of the impact on staff, patients or population wellbeing.”
Stories and nominations can be told using any relevant Learning Matters award nomination category, at: https://www.vsnw.org.uk/nw-health-awards-2017. Nominations are open until 12 noon on 10 April.
