Liverpool 5G to lead on ARL Tool Collaboration

Liverpool 5G is managed and supported by eHealth Cluster, which was established to bring together the three worlds of technology, health and social care. Having worked with various organisations including the NHS, the team are experienced in the challenges around adopting new technology in the sector. They recognised the focus is too often on new technology, without an understanding of real-life issues and the practicalities of implementation. They therefore developed an Adoption Readiness Level (ARL) tool to sit alongside the Technology Readiness Level (TRL), and are proposing to work with the other 5G Testbeds working in health and social care to enhance the online self-assessment tool and share lessons learnt.
