There is an increasing national emphasis on improving the spread and adoption of nationally prioritised innovations – and a recognition that AHSNs have a key role to play to support this in their specific regions. The Innovation Technology Tariff (ITT) and Innovation Technology Payment (ITP) products are good examples of these national priority innovations.
We are working on a best practice methodology that applies the research evidence on how innovations spread with our knowledge and networks of Wessex.
To further improve our knowledge of how innovation is adopted, and to further develop our methodology for spread, we have completed our first innovation adoption insight review with Hampshire Hospitals NHS FT. The purpose of undertaking this work is to understand how the trust identifies, decides upon and implements innovation.
