The search is on for people and projects where individual and organisational learning is driving development and transforming the healthcare sector in the North West.

We are looking for brilliant people and brilliant ideas in any digital context.

The Innovation Agency is pleased to announce their sponsorship of a regional award for 2017 to celebrate all aspects of digital innovation in healthcare. This sponsorship is part of a commitment to a new regional learning campaign and awards programme Learning Matters. Learning Matters has been developed by Health Education England (HEE), the workforce development arm of the NHS and it is led by Voluntary Sector North West (VSNW) the voluntary sector infrastructure agency for the region. The Learning Matters campaign partnership straddles the public, private and third sector bringing people together. It is all about working better together by effectively sharing knowledge and increasing understanding.

The Innovation Agency is particularly keen to hear about people who are unlocking the opportunity of digital healthcare, pushing boundaries in developing sustainable digital technology based solutions to transform healthcare experiences, or championing and driving digital innovation in the region. Nominees may be working in, across and with the health and care sector in the North West. They want you to share examples of digital innovation in action which are promoting new health and care practice and making a real difference to the sector. 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.”
