Wessex AHSN supports the spread of proven innovation across the health and care system.
Since summer 2018, we have been researching and developing a standardised, evidence based approach to the spread and adoption of innovations in our region. We call this our 'spread and adoption model' – the model is constantly evolving, and we continue to test this in the field and share it more widely for comment. The key output of our spread and adoption model is a 'spread and adoption plan'.
We ran two webinars in early March 2019 to introduce the first three components of our model and the spread and adoption planning template to colleagues from other AHSNs. You can watch the webinar below. You can also download the slides and the spread and adoption planning template from the Resources section on the right of this page.
The AHSN Network has agreed to use the spread and adoption planning template to coordinate the spread of the Accelerated Access Collaborative Rapid Uptake Products and innovations on the NHS England Innovation Technology Payment scheme.
