Digital Primary Care Innovation Hub
Supporting transformation through innovation

‘Innovate’ …to make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.  Source: Google search: Oxford Languages Dictionary.

The Innovation Hub will support the identification of solutions to unmet needs within primary care including pharmacy, optometry and dentistry specialities and we welcome submission of innovative ideas from all individuals or organisations involved in primary care.

Your innovation idea could range from adoption of a new technology to improve care, a simple process change to the way services work, or any other example of where innovative solutions are being implemented within health and care settings in the region.  Whether your idea or project is large or small, having the opportunity to share it, could enable change from innovation and collaboration to achieve improved quality of care, as well as improved experience of patients and clinicians.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, health and care services responded rapidly to some of the most complex challenges ever faced.  Services have created exciting innovations and opportunities to transform the healthcare system for the better.  Examples of these below in ‘Digital Innovation Projects in HNY’.

To facilitate shared learning with colleagues and partners within the Humber and North Yorkshire region, we have featured digital innovation projects on this page.  These are examples of innovative initiatives and encourage such achievements to be replicated within the region.

If you are involved in an innovative project in Humber & North Yorkshire, we would love to hear from you.  Please contact us to share examples of where innovative solutions are being implemented in HNY.  This is open to anyone working in primary care, or direct participation in, real world initiatives, where innovation is being utilised to tackle an identified challenge.

The HNY DPC Innovation Hub team will follow-up with you for further information.

These are innovation projects taking place across the Humber and North Yorkshire region:
