digital health + care projects
Sitekit is working with over 80 NHS clients in innovative health and care projects that improve the health and well-being of people, putting them in control of managing their health. Please find below an overview of case studies for some of these projects.
The IAM (Integrated Assessment Mapping) Portal is aimed at delivering emotional and clinical support to teenage and young adult (TYA) with cancer.
The project team set out to provide TYA cancer patients with a holistic, age-appropriate digital pathway that would allow those affected by cancer to maintain or regain control over their lives, in collaboration with their care team.
Technically, the service needed to allow the registration of patients, collecting robust data about the patients and their needs. It also needed to be accessible through a mobile app and support multi-disciplinary teams in a clinical setting.
Mi (More independent is an innovative health partnership in Liverpool, led by NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group.
Mi is funded by Innovate UK and is part of the dallas (Delivering Assisted Living Lifestyles At Scale) programme. Partners in Mi include Riverside, Tunstall, Philips and PSS.
Living it Up is the Scottish element of the UK-wide dallas (Delivering Assisted Living Lifestyles At Scale) programme, funded by a consortium led by the Scottish Government, Innovate UK, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and Scottish Enterprise.
The objective of Living it Up is to improve health and wellbeing, specifically for people over 55 and people with long-term chronic conditions, using the support of their circle of care and community.
eRedbook was developed by Sitekit, in partnership with the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), Harlow Printing, Microsoft, dallas (Delivering Assisted Living Lifestyles at Scale) Year Zero programme and NHS partners, with the aim of creating a digital alternative for the Redbook or Personal Child Health Record.
Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust runs St Mary's Hospital, Queen Alexandra Hospital, Petersfield Hospital and Gosport War Memorial Hospital, in Hampshire.
An existing customer since 2006, Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust approached Sitekit to consult on a new website. Because of various reasons, the Trust only had six weeks to create the new website – from initial concept to delivery.
East of England Ambulance Service NHS Trust (EEAST) provides urgent and emergency care, including the ambulance service, to the six counties of the east of England: Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Suffolk.
For this project, EEAST was looking for a better way of sharing internal news with its staff. With employees being spread across six counties and working different shift patterns ‘on the road’, getting important information to them in a timely manner was difficult.
The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is a national organisation tasked with improving the health and wealth of the nation through research. Funded by the Department of Health, the NIHR offers one of the most integrated clinical research systems in the world.
Working with the NIHR, Sitekit designed and developed a website that catered to different stakeholders and consistently reinforced the NIHR brand identity.
i-focus, an overarching dallas community, consisted of three workstreams that aimed to bring technical and strategic coherence, cross-sector collaboration, consumer-focused innovation and real commercial scale to the dallas programme.
To allow different health and care systems to communicate with each other, i-focus developed a ‘Reference Architecture’: a template that explains the key IT elements needed to achieve data flow between different health and care systems.
BEST is an abbreviation of ‘Barnsley Education and Support Time’: the local GP Training Operation at NHS Barnsley CCG, of which Dr Sabiha Atcha is the Lead Tutor. When she returned to general practice as a locum after home educating her children, she found that there were so many guidelines that she felt she had to carry them around in a suitcase from surgery to surgery.
The Sitekit team worked collaboratively with the clinical leads and IT teams at Barnsley CCG to create a GP Reference Portal consisting of over 1,000 items including clinical imagery, advice, guidance and prescribing support.
