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 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 findings, 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.

The Ecosystem is delivered in partnership with the ECHAlliance and the Greater Manchester Academic Health Science Network, and is aligned with the delivery priorities of Health Innovation Manchester.

Our quarterly open meetings are held at MSP Citylabs on Oxford Road, Manchester, and cover a range of health and technology related topics.
