The Healthy Living Lab at Westcott

An approach to innovation that brings together healthcare practitioners and technology providers to co-create, develop and deliver solutions

Health-Living-Lab_Background

The Healthy Living Lab at Westcott

The existing emergency and urgent care eco-system in the UK is incredibly complex.  It suffers from a reliance on poor connectivity and ageing technology, which present a significant challenge to health providers, and a significant risk to patients. A major upgrade programme – the Ambulance Radio Programme as a part of a new 4G-based Emergency Services Network – is now underway, as part of plans to transform connectivity in the future.

The Healthy Living Lab at Westcott is being developed to help drive further evolution (enabled by 5G connectivity over satellite and terrestrial comms) and improvement of this eco-system. It is a unique and neutral demonstration space for the development of new services and capabilities for ambulances, paramedics and the care pathways they support. Our Living Lab journey began with the purchase of an ambulance alongside NHS Arden & GEM CSU and is continually growing in physical and virtual resources.

Connected Ambulances

Advances in connectivity have driven innovation within the health-technology sector and have the potential to increase the capability of ambulances so more care is administered in situ. But testing the efficacy of these devices can be challenging. Ambulance trusts hoping to test 5G enabled equipment often need an ambulance that is already connected to the network. And with so many solutions on the market, it can be difficult to know what to choose, resulting in potentially expensive and risky trials

The Healthy Living Lab at Wescott de-risks this process for ambulance services by providing a fully connected ambulance and access to a range of vehicles, available to trial new technologies in situ.

Who is the Healthy Living Lab for?

Health Economies

The Healthy Living Lab can support health/ambulance trusts, CCGs, and ICS/STPs by showcasing what technology is available and how it can be used to tackle existing challenges.

Technology Providers

The Healthy Living Lab can support technology providers by offering a space to test applications and validate solutions, as well as connecting you with the Health Trusts that need these capabilities.
