NHS England - Test Bed 

22 January 2016 

We're absolutely delighted to be partnering with Philips et al in the successful NHS England LCIA Test Bed.

The first wave of seven Test Beds were announced by NHS Chief Executive Simon Stevens at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, on Friday 22 January 2016.  – which will see the NHS, including two New Care Model Vanguard sites, partner with Philips and a number of SMEs and social enterprises [us] to support the frail elderly and people with long term conditions to remain well outside of hospital and avoid unnecessary admissions.  They will test new approaches to identifying patients that can benefit from additional support and help them to self-care at home through improved education and telehealth technologies.
