365 Response Ltd has been awarded significant investment by SBRI Healthcare for 365 SmartPlatform, an innovative logistics and flow management system.
Also known as Healthcab, the 365 SmartPlatform delivers a completely new way of managing urgent care flow. It connects GPs and community staff to dedicated urgent care and primary care transport, thereby enabling patients to be responded to faster and treated safely. Bringing the technologies more commonly seen in 999 dispatch, the cloud-based 365 SmartPlatform helps commissioners benefit from value for money and improved performance while solving the problem of A&E exit blocking and ambulance bunching.
From the national competition, five organisations, including 365 Response, were chosen to receive funding for their potential to greatly reduce emergency admissions.
Richard Phillips, Chair of SBRI Board and Director of the Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) said, “As demands and pressure on the urgent and emergency care system increase, we need to find new ways to bring high value innovation into the NHS.”
Sarah Fatchett, Founder 365 Response commented: “SBRI Healthcare is great initiative where vibrant, creative and ambitious SMEs can secure support to develop an idea from prototype into action and into business. It can make a massive difference. We have created new product, delivered real value, employed local people and generally grown – not just in people but in skills, confidence and delivery.”
SBRI Healthcare is an NHS England initiative, led by the country’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), that co-develops innovative products to address unmet health needs.
