New unit set to revolutionise how technology is used in hospitals
The state-of-the-art unit, called DRIVE – Digital, Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments – is the first of its kind in the world. It is both a physical and conceptual unit and is the result of a unique partnership between GOSH, University College London (UCL) and leading industry experts in technology, artificial intelligence and digital innovation.
The idea behind DRIVE is to create a unique informatics hub to harness the power of the latest technologies to revolutionise clinical practice and enhance the patient experience, not only for GOSH patients but across the wider NHS.
The DRIVE team are working with ARM, Barclays, Microsoft, NHS Digital, NTT DATA, Samsung and UCL to ensure the latest in technology and digital developments will be developed, appraised and implemented into a clinical setting at pace.
Tom Winstanley, Head of Digital Consulting & Innovation, NTT DATA UK said: “We understand that the key to Great Ormond Street Hospital’s (GOSH) success is patient-centred, wellness-focused care delivered by robust primary care teams and we are committed to implementing the technology that best aids their work. Data analytics is becoming increasingly important in healthcare delivery. This is why we are excited to partner with GOSH, applying our broad range of technology solutions to give better outcomes and enhanced patient experience at a lower cost – helping staff continue to provide world class care.”
