Who Commissioned the Project and What Was Needed?

Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT), a mental health services provider, were aiming to accelerate their implementation of digital technologies to provide better user care during the pandemic.

The Blue Box provided an opportunity for healthcare professionals to quickly measure vital readings and to ensure signs of deterioration are caught at the earliest stages. HPFT needed to supplement their internal capacity as they shifted focus to implementation.

Why AI Digital?

NHS Trusts value the skills and capabilities that AI Digital bring to ensure delivery of complex projects. AI Digital deliver projects at pace and ensure that the patients and the carers are at the centre of the project.

How Were AI Digital Able to Assist?

Due to the pandemic, the local Integrated Care System (ICS) was operating under significant pressure. HPFT was working within very tight timeframes. to deliver each stage of the project.

AI Digital collaborated with HPFT’s staff as well as supply chain and suppliers to create a framework that enabled the project to be delivered in the agreed timeframes.

AI Digital adapted to the technology challenges, accounting for any potential difficulties from the outset. AI Digital’s experience and ready-made frameworks were helpful for rapid delivery, as there was no need to start from scratch.

AI Digital delivered phase 1 of the project within a tight timescale along with a blueprint for scaling up delivery and informing the wider NHS. The second phase of the project saw the project enter wider usage and increased physical monitoring of patients and AI Digital again enabled rapid delivery of the project.

Which Services Were Used on the Project?

AI Digital assembled a team with extensive NHS experience, including change management, project management and training. Technical expertise was provided to assist with interoperability and integrated systems for the duration of the project.
