The North West London Collaboration of CCGs has struck a deal with digital health company Inhealthcare to strengthen its digital services and reduce pressure on GP surgeries.
The CCG said procuring digital health products for use by some two million NHS patients would help it to operate more cost-effectively.
Harrogate-based Inhealthcare provides technologies, which include apps, supporting equipment and patient monitoring systems, to the NHS.
The company’s chief executive Bryn Sage said digital aids will be made available to patients through mobile devices, telephones, smartphones, tablets and computers.
‘This is a major milestone for Inhealthcare,’ he said.
Kwesi Afful, digital citizen and innovation lead at the North West London Collaboration of CCGs, said: ‘We have been looking for a solution which will enable digital innovation among our clinical colleagues.
‘We are excited about this collaboration with Inheathcare and believe that it will help us deliver cutting-edge services and solutions to help improve health and wellbeing across [North West] London.’
