DISH: Covid-19 affects progress

posted in: News | 0

The COVID-19 pandemic has meant that most European partners have had to postpone their implementation of ‘test sites’ for the DISH concepts, just as we were entering the testing phase. But work is still continuing to ensure everything is set up so that it can be implemented as soon as we are able.

We were also unable to hold our expected partners consortium meeting in Valencia at the beginning of this month, but were able to have a virtual meeting, on 4th June, where all the partners updated on how far they’d got, and what plans they had to mitigate the delays.

The DISH project’s most recent newsletter concentrates on how digital technologies can help to overcome the challenges for health and social care posed by the COVID-19 pandemic, and looks at the transformational benefits that innovations in science and technology can bring for patients, staff and healthcare systems.

DISH (Digital & Innovation Skills Helix in Health) is a European project, which focuses on digital competencies needed among healthcare professionals when they need to apply new technological solutions in their work. The eHealth Cluster is a partner in the UK Triple Helix partnership of the DISH project, with Edge Hill University (EHU), and  led by NHS Liverpool Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG).
