Connected Health Cities (Greater Manchester) – Using data to improve diagnosis and treatment of stroke in Greater Manchester

By Tom Foley.

A collaboration between Manchester University, AHSN, local trusts, local authorities and the Greater Manchester Stroke Operational Delivery Network. Linking data from GP, providers, the ambulance service and patient reporting apps, to surveil and build models of stroke service use. This will help build predictive models and service interventions to reduce false-positive (stroke mimics) and false-negative (missed strokes) rates. Further predictive modelling will aim to identify patients at risk of delayed discharge, recurrent stroke or haemorrhagic stroke patients at risk of rapid deterioration. These predictive models will be embedded within a redesigned care pathway that will be iteratively improved based on learning from continuous data.
