i-focus

The dallas (delivering assisted living lifestyles at scale) programme was developed by the UK’s innovation agency, Innovate UK and joint funded by the National Institute for Health Research and the Scottish Government. The programme tasked four consortia to think beyond traditional health and social care to consider how new ideas and technology can be used to improve the way people live. This included the full life cycle of engaging with communities to co-design and redesign services; to develop and roll out innovative solutions supporting self-care; to promote and increase digital inclusions and awareness of digital self-care; and to explore how to mainstream and sustain successful self-care products and services.

i-Focus is a community with a focus on interoperability. They also developed prototypes of both statutory and consumer targeted reassurance services to promote and encourage a more proactive self-care/ self-management approach. A key output of i-focus is the national membership based digital health interoperability community called DHACA.
