‘Civic Blueprint’ closing the gap between data and action shortlisted for HSJ Award
25 August 2022
Cheshire and Merseyside Integrated Care System and One Liverpool Partnership have been shortlisted for this year’s HSJ Awards in the ‘Using Data to Connect Services’ category.
The HSJ Awards, now in their 42nd year, shine a light on outstanding achievements and excellence in healthcare service provision. They also provide an important platform to shape the future of the NHS.
The ‘Civic Blueprint’ has been developed by Cheshire and Merseyside ICS and One Liverpool Partnership to help other integrated care systems close the gap between data and action to enable better health and care. It is based on collective experience and learnings gained over the past two years and includes three key elements, one of which is the population health management system, Combined Intelligence for Population Health (CIPHA).
Built on Graphnet’s CareCentric population health, integration and shared record technologies, CIPHA helped to quickly predict, identify and control outbreaks of COVID-19 across the region. This, in turn, led to support for the world’s first evidence of large-scale, voluntary Covid-19 testing, which informed national UK policy, and enablement of the first risk-mitigated, re-opening of mass gatherings in the Northern Hemisphere.
Another element of the Blueprint, the ICS’s System-P Programme, uses the CIPHA data linked with workflow information, to identify opportunities for more preventative and targeted care. This has supported, for example, the launch of the North West’s only virtual ward for heart- failure, which uses Docobo’s remote monitoring technologies.
Another Graphnet customer, Staffordshire and Stoke-on-Trent ICS, has been nominated for the ‘Integrated Care System of the Year’ award. Read more about their achievements here.
The full list of nominees is available here.
Finalists will be announced at The HSJ Awards 2022 Ceremony, which takes place on 17 November 2022, at the Battersea Evolution Centre, London.
