Through a partnership with University College London, NHS Digital and other leading industry experts, a new centre has been opened at a hospital in London to transform the use of technology across health and care. London’s Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) is looking to become a research and innovation exemplar for the wider NHS and internationally with the launch of a centre called DRIVE Digital, Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments – that aims to explore, pilot and support the use of cross-sector commodity products and services, leveraging technology to help improve patient outcomes.Launched through a partnership with University College London, NHS Digital and leading experts in technology, AI and digital innovation, the new centre is expected to become a space for clinicians, NHS Digital technicians, UCL students and other industry partners to collaborate and drive rapid translation of solutions into clinical practice rather than policy or public health developments, according to the Memorandum of Understanding between NHS Digital and GOSH.The aim is to use technology and data to provide safer, better (data driven) and kinder care that is clinician focussed and patient centred. DRIVE is the how and provides the capability to develop scalable solutions to improve healthcare, said Dr Shankar Sridharan, DRIVE Clinical Director.
