Community Diagnostic Centres – Innovation Exchange

1 December 2021, 9am - 12pm | Online event
NHSE and London AHSNs hosting an event to discuss innovative solutions to support Community Diagnostic Centres with a focus on Cardiology.

The NHS London Community Diagnostic Centres (CDC) Programme are working closely with clinical pathway groups in the design and development of the CDCs to ensure they are meeting the needs of patients and the health system.

UCLPartners is supporting the programme to advise on innovative solutions to support the CDCs, in order to improve efficiency and care for patients. To showcase this work, all three London AHSNs (Health Innovation Network, UCLPartners and Imperial College Health Partners) will be hosting an Innovation Exchange Event that will give clinicians, pathway experts, system leaders and innovators an opportunity to engage and discuss the innovative solutions that can support the set-up of the CDCs.

The innovations that will be presented at the event have been selected based on challenge areas identified through our structured engagement with a variety of stakeholders in the field. The current focus is on cardiology and the pathways linked to heart failure, atrial fibrillation, chest pain, and valve disease.

This Innovation Exchange Event will give clinicians, pathway experts, system leaders and innovators an opportunity to engage and discuss the innovative solutions that can support the set-up of the CDCs. 

The following areas of focus have been highlighted:

• Referrals’ efficiency and support tools

• Patient empowerment and education tools

• Automation of tasks

• Patient-clinician and clinician-clinician communication tools

• Booking systems

• Cardiac specific innovations
