COMMERCIAL: Camden Clinical Commissioning Group has won funding for a £1m project that will use statistical data to predict outcomes for patients with diabetes.

The UK’s innovation agency Innovate UK awarded the funding as part of a £6m pot for collaborative research projects that develop new ideas in the digital health sector.

The CCG will work with Speechly Bircham LLP and Surrey University on the project, which will link health and non-health data to predict clinical outcomes.

Camden CCG accountable officer David Cryer said: “The insights will enable clinicians to understand whether their preventative measures or interventions are likely to be effective, ineffective, wasteful or even harmful.”
