Care City: Improving Population Health

Care City presents a unique opportunity to improve population health alongside regeneration through creating new relationships with our community, our system, innovators and experts.

Care City

2 April 2019

Older people and carers in north-east London are to be at the forefront of the latest innovations in healthy ageing. Care City (£1.8m funding) is one of seven initiatives to receive funding as an innovation test bed.  

Health and social care organisations will collaborate with researchers and the technology sector to pioneer and evaluate the use of novel combinations of interconnected devices such as wearable monitors, data analysis and ways of working which will help patients stay well and monitor their conditions themselves at home.

The investment is expected to act as a catalyst for regenerating one of London’s most deprived regions by making it a world-class site for innovation and excellence in healthy ageing.  The Care City innovation test bed will work across the four London boroughs of Barking and Dagenham, Havering, Redbridge and Waltham Forest. Among the innovations planned by Care City are Alivecor, Canary and MyBrainBook.
