We found the Belfast ECHAlliance Ecosystem event extremely beneficial. The morning part of the session took us through the various challenges of medication optimisation and gave us a far greater understanding of how we can play a role in addressing this issue. While the afternoon session offered Motech the opportunity to present to a number of key stakeholders in the region and obtain detailed feedback, as well as accelerating our ability to arrange follow up meetings so as to carry on the conversation in more detail. Overall a very worthwhile and successful day
Working together within the context of the NI Connected Health Ecosystem has been a useful and rewarding experience. We have greatly benefitted from the knowledgeable input of the ECHAlliance in drawing together and facilitating dialogue with potential partners to address critical medicines management issues. On our own, this would not have been easily possible nor would it have generated the richness of experience or potential for innovation that we have enjoyed to date
The EU-US eHealth Business Marketplace gave me the opportunity to address priorities within our ICT Strategy through targeted meetings with potential suppliers. The matchmaking format of 15 minute meetings maximised my time and has then allowed me to follow up with suppliers where there is a real fit
The ECHAlliance has allowed my start-up business a fantastic opportunity to network, interact and contribute to the NI Health Agenda. I have been able to communicate with key people who can help increase by business and have been able to learn about wider European opportunities. The people at ECHAlliance have been incredibly supportive and pro-active.
NHS Halton first became involved with the ECHAlliance ecosystem in 2012, it was originally driven by the need for a multi agency solution to the sharing of data. Since that time we have shared expertise with a number of ecosystem members with several programs of work underway. NHS Halton have brought a wellbeing and social value discussion to the table and remain a key stakeholder as we push forward as a system to crack the big technical health barriers. The innovation and technical knowhow we’ve experience is amazing and for that reason alone NHS Halton are in the ecosystem to stay.
