We work locally and nationally with other AHSN’s to make sure great products, innovations and ideas become visible across the NHS.
A number of options are available, and we use the most appropriate, depending on the phase of the product’s development.
For example we have published case-studies on the national Atlas of Innovation.
We proactively seek and develop opportunities to showcase innovators. For example at the national NHS Expo, Hampshire Nucleus, or at our own annual stakeholder event. We have a great track record of getting companies air-time, and though that, introductions and progress.
"Wessex AHSN worked hard to get 'my mhealth' to the NHS Expo conference in Manchester, and then worked hard to bring people to the stand and help us network. As a direct result, we have had not only potential new customers but had a new order, which in turn will allow these patients access to their disease specific self management programme 24 hours a day, reducing the burden on the NHS - which is what we’re all working towards!"
Ian Thompson, Strategic Director, 'my mhealth'.
Companies chosen to present will ordinarily have met us first through our Health Innovation Surgeries.
