GOSH launches new digital hub

GOSH logoGreat Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) has opened a new innovation centre to help accelerate the adoption of digital technologies in the NHS. The new unit, called DRIVE (Digital, Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments), is a partnership between GOSH, University College London (UCL), industry and NHS Digital.

The intention of DRIVE is to create a digital hub that will draw on technologies, such as artificial intelligence, to improve clinical practice and enhance the patient experience. The unit will be used to hot-house concepts, so they can be scaled-up within GOSH and across wider NHS programmes.

The unit will be working in partnership with Arm, Barclays (through its Digital Eagles and Eagle Labs initiatives), NTT DATASamsung and Microsoft. This follows the news in May 2018 that Microsoft, GOSH and UCL were working together to help develop artificial intelligence tools aimed at transforming the health of children. This partnership, which now forms part of DRIVE, has led to the hospital being recreated in Minecraft, allowing patients and their families to explore the hospital virtually before they visit in real life. It has also created Project Fizzyo, which is using chipped sensors inside airway clearance devices to help researcher look at how physical activity affects the health of children with cystic fibrosis.

The initiative will also receive support from UCL’s Industry Exchange Network. The Network places over 500 students a year on work projects with industry partners, including 70 student projects for the NHS last year—half of which were in the early stages of DRIVE’s development.

NHS Digital will be heavily involved with DRIVE, with CEO Sarah Wilkinson sitting on the DRIVE strategy steering group and CCO Michael Kay joining the operational board. The organisation expects DRIVE to play an important role in leveraging commodity technologies in healthcare, including artificial intelligence, machine learning, natural language processing and cloud services.

This is an interesting partnership and one we will be following closely. The NHS needs to better leverage digital technologies to improve efficiency and the quality of care, but it continues to struggle to move projects from small pilots to scale—broad and successful collaboration is vital if that situation is going to change.
