Visionable Connect, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust case study presented by David East, Business Solutions Director, Visionable

As the coronavirus swept across England in March 2019, Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust needed a way for patients to remain in contact with their loved ones whilst in lockdown. Visionable partnered with WifiSpark to deliver a simple solution. The Visionable Connect video calling app was downloaded onto 246 tablets to enable professionals to support patients without having to visit their bedside and allow patients to make calls from intensive care to say goodbye to loved ones as well as enabling children in hospital to access educational materials.

Visionable Connect is a secure and trusted video platform that ensures healthcare professionals, patients and family members can stay connected during hospital stays. With number of cases and hospital admissions higher than ever before, Visionable is offering Connect free of charge for three months.

Population Health Management in BNSSG – a collaborative endeavor presented by Philip Harfield & Chris Davies, NHS Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire CCG

2 year ago a networking event led BNSSG Clinical Commissioning Group and University of Bristol Medical School to realise that they had a shared agenda in analysing routinely collected health and social care data, either under the title of Population Health Management or Applied Research.  It was identified that these goals were essentially the same and that there were benefits by delivering in a collaborative way.  We will present our journey of collaboration, the sharing of resources and the resulting outputs and benefits to patient health including insights directly applicable to the COVID-19 system response.
