The role of Wessex AHSN is to catalyse the adoption of proven innovations. We support the innovators, the innovation adopters and the wider health system in a number of ways, examples of which are below. You can download full details of our support package from the resources section on the right.
Support to adopters
For example, we can help you to showcase your use of an innovation and assist with overcoming barriers to implementation. We will work with you to generate business cases for adoption and help design real world evaluation to determine what the impact of the innovation has had on patient outcomes and in care settings.
Support to innovators
We have a large network of contacts across the health and care system – we can facilitate networking, trials and innovation support. Our evaluation team can provide analysis to outline the potential impact of an innovation and problem solve barriers to use.
Support to the wider health and care system
The adoption of innovation is a two way process. Wessex AHSN works across the system to determine the need for innovations and the problems they solve. For example, we’re currently undertaking a review of how innovation is adopted in an acute hospital setting to learn how a trust identifies, adopts and implements innovation.
