Our vision is connect and empower research, learning, business and health communities to shape health and care through digital innovation and create a better quality of life for people, carers and families by enabling quick and easy access to the right care and information.
We aim to cement the international reputation of Leeds City Region as the best place in the UK to innovate in technology-enabled care, and to develop the health and care workforce of the future. We strive to bring our community’s innovations to millions across the world and to make a significant contribution to the NHS, helping to reduce its funding gap of £30 billion by 2020.
“The NHS is open to innovation, but finds it difficult to deliver the best changes, and at scale, to solve the big problems facing health and care in the UK today. By forming a strategic partnership with NHS Digital, the DHEZ community will lead the way by developing a framework for innovation and adoption in Yorkshire, the UK, and internationally.” Bill McCarthy, Deputy Vice Chancellor (Operations), University of Bradford.
