Current exemplar projects
Population Health Management
The Innovation Hub is working with GP practices to progress initiatives to support the improved self-management of patients with a diagnosis of cardiovascular disease.
This pilot project is providing an opportunity for SYB ICS to explore the potential of significantly increasing the number of home and agile workers. Agile working can be defined as a broad spectrum of working practices which enable and empower a person to work – how, when, and where they want, supported by the originations policy, procedures and culture in which they work.
Urgent and Emergency Care
This pilot project is training 30 frontline staff in techniques of cognitive behavioural therapy that can be used in consultation with patients experiencing anxiety as a result of respiratory illness. The aim is to reduce calls to the emergency services and admission to hospital.
