We've launched our Innovation Update newsletter, designed to share some of the latest innovations we have seen and give you the opportunity to get involved and help shape the future.
Supporting innovation across the healthcare system is more important than ever and we need your help with this. Wessex Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) accelerates the development, evaluation, and uptake of innovations in the NHS.
Wessex AHSN supports approximately 200 new innovators a year that aim to improve patient outcomes and reduce NHS costs. Sometimes we have the appropriate clinical expertise in-house. Sometimes we need to ask for help to make sure resources are spent supporting innovations which fit the NHS needs. Equally, we know that many experts are keen to help shape future developments and improve patient outcomes.
The newsletter includes innovations grouped into three different categories defined by the nature of the ask. To ensure innovations match NHS needs and have a sound evidence-base we sometimes need expert advice ('Discovery'), and sometimes need pilot sites ('Develop'). Occasionally we see innovations which we think might already be usable and helpful ('Deploy').
We hope this newsletter is interesting, informative, and gives you an opportunity to help shape innovations today which may become mainstream tomorrow. Sign up to the Innovation Update newsletter here.
If you have an innovation and need help with it, if you have a problem that needs help solving, or if you're adopting an innovation and need support, please get in touch with us.
Thank you for your support.
