New Digital Primary Care Innovation Hub launches across Humber and North Yorkshire today.

Today sees the launch of the new Humber and North Yorkshire Digital Primary Care Innovation Hub. Yorkshire & Humber AHSN has been working in partnership with the Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership and NHS England Digital Primary Care North East and Yorkshire, to establish an Innovation Hub with the aim of accelerating the uptake of digital solutions within primary care, including pharmacy, optometry and dentistry specialities. 
Healthcare innovation is vital to help tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the NHS and can help improve patient care and outcomes while easing pressure on primary care staff. The Innovation Hub will be the ‘front door’ for digital enabled innovation and improvement for primary care within the Humber and North Yorkshire region across the six places: East Riding, Hull, North Lincolnshire, North East Lincolnshire, North Yorkshire and York. 
The Innovation Hub will provide the opportunity to identify and support clinical and non-clinical unmet needs aligned to Humber and North Yorkshire Integrated Care Board primary care strategic priorities. By creating a managed and prioritised repository of unmet needs that can be solved through innovation, the Hub will ensure that patients will benefit from cutting-edge solutions. It will act as the single point of contact for all system-wide innovation enquiries and requests for guidance, advice and support.
