Cambridge Respiratory Innovations Ltd (CRiL)
CRiL has developed a hand-held device to measure the level of carbon dioxide in the breath. N-Tidal enables patients with chronic respiratory conditions, such as COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and asthma, to directly monitor their lung performance at home and take appropriate measures to avoid distressing exacerbations and potential hospitalisation.
Beringar has developed ground-breaking new technology that provides a comprehensive digital picture of how NHS buildings are being utilised. The system detects both human activity and equipment (location and movement). It also monitors eight different environmental factors to support better human-building interaction.
The Digital Pioneer programme has helped to implement secure video communication to connect paramedics with local specialist stroke consultants from their ambulance.
Eastern AHSN and West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust have been trailing Medic Bleep, a communication tool, to improve service efficiency and reducing delays in sharing patient information between clinicians, staff and outpatient departments.
Eastern AHSN is working with NHS England (Midlands and East) and Healios to implement online CBT for children and young people in contact with the criminal justice system.
