GM Ecosystem

Greater Manchester Connected Health Ecosystem

The Manchester Connected Health Ecosystem is a collaborative network that brings together world leading academic expertise, industry partners from SMEs to major international digital & pharma companies, Health and Social Care professionals across the NHS, Public Health and local government, and patient and service user representatives.

Serving a City region wide population of some 2.8 million people, the Ecosystem is designed to engage key stakeholders in helping to deliver an innovation friendly environment for the development and deployment of connected health solutions; fully utilising the power of digital, mobile, and wireless technologies to enhance access to care, improve health, and deliver better outcomes.
The devolution of Greater Manchester’s Health & Social Care budget presents a unique opportunity to transform the lives of residents, allowing the regions leaders and clinicians to tailor budgets and priorities to directly meet the needs of local communities and improve the health and wellbeing of the region.

The Ecosystem, which is coordinated by Digital Futures, The Christabel Pankhurst Institute and Health Innovation Manchester, plays an important role in bringing together key organisations and personnel in this area, creating a platform for sharing new and important policy developments, research, funding opportunities and innovations.

We are a member of the European Connected Health Alliance (ECHAlliance), a network of permanent multi-stakeholder Ecosystems across Europe, North America & China.

Our Quarterly open meetings are normally held virtually and cover a range of health and technology related topics, further details of which can be found on our Ecosystem Meetings page.
