Connected Health Cities

Leave a comment

The Health North Pilot is a £20m government investment to seed ‘learning health systems’ in four regions across the North of England including the Greater Manchester region.

The aim is to test at scale the methodology of learning health systems through continuous care pathway redesign and quality improvement informed by repeated analyses of routinely-collected health data.

Connected Health Cities are consulting across Greater Manchester and inviting any interested parties to submit candidate projects. Proposals should clearly state how they contribute to the learning health system by:

• Identifying demonstrated community needs
• Specifying the data sources that will be required
• Describing the intervention for care pathway redesign/quality improvement
• Defining outcome measures
• Outlining key milestones

Further information about the call be accessed here.

Project proposals should be described on no more than 3-sides of A4 using the bespoke proforma available here, and sent to by Wednesday 3rd February 2016.

Please contact if you are intending to bid.

If you have any queries about the call, please contact
