We are delighted to announce that eHealth Productivity and Innovation in Cornwall (EPIC) have secured another 3 years’ of European Regional Development Funding, supported by a range of delivery partners to continue the project until April 2023.

The EPIC project is fuelled by the ideas of those who would benefit from using technology for health and wellbeing, sharing these with local business who can in turn develop these ideas into truly useful technological solutions rooted in real life need. 

Adhering to Government advice in relation to COVID-19, we will not be hosting face to face workshops for this phase of the project, as originally planned. Instead, we would like you to join the conversation online instead; making useful connections and sharing ideas for better health and care.

Everyone is welcome to contribute, from any profession – if you use health or care services, or have ideas onhow we can help innovate using technology, we want to hear from you.

We are also keen to connect with technology enterprises in Cornwall, that may or may not currently be developing health related products and services.

Later this year, we will be launching our ‘challenge fund’, amounting to £600,000. This fund is available to local Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to apply to for grant funding to create technology – whether software, hardware or implementation – that will improve the provision of health and care in our region and beyond.

How can we implement voice activated data input within frontline health and care services?

How can video consultations and online tools support primary care from a patient perspective?

Could robotics and smart devices be helpful in care homes?

How should we continue to work together across Cornwall to develop digital health innovations in the future? 

How can smart speakers be used to their full potential in care homes? 

Could technology be used to improve patient experience when using outpatients services? 

How can technology help people to live independently at home? 

Digital technology in outpatient mental health – how is it working, how could it work, and for who?
