How should we continue to work together across Cornwall to develop digital health innovations in the future?

Ask Cornwall

eHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall (EPIC) has secured another three years’ European Regional Development Funding, supported by a range of delivery partners to continue the project until April 2023.

EPIC is fuelled by the ideas of those who would benefit from using technology for health and wellbeing, sharing these with local business who can develop these ideas into truly useful technological solutions rooted in real-life need.

Adhering to government advice in relation to COVID-19, we will not be hosting face-to-face workshops for this phase of the project, as originally planned.

Instead, we would like to introduce you to a platform called ‘Ask Cornwall’, an online community that allows you to create an account, make useful connections and share ideas for better health and care in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. 

Everyone is welcome to join, from any profession – if you use health or care services, or have ideas on how we can help improve using technology, we want to hear from you. The EPIC team has planned a series of workshops, hosted online, via Zoom, to discuss the ideas and considerations that have stemmed from the initial Ask Cornwall discussions and to move towards the creation of a working group to champion the use of voice technology in health and care.

The EPIC project has been working with a wide range of stakeholders, encompassing health and care providers and patients, as well as Cornish technology companies, policy makers and commissioners – and all groups between, to identify the real-world problems and develop innovative solutions rooted in need, together.

These collaborations will not only create useful products and services that could benefit our health and wellbeing, but will boost the local economy by creating jobs, with the potential to export the solutions nationally and globally.

As innovation projects are often only funded for a number of years, how do we keep all stakeholders connected and productive once the projects come to an end?

This session will be lead by Dr Seb Stevens, EPIC Research Fellow. Please register your place via the Eventbrite webpage* to express your interest for this online event.
