Helping partners find the right solution
Our role as an innovation partner with NHS and social care organisations in the North West Coast involves helping to find solutions relevant to their needs.
We use our wide networks to identify products which have been proved to be effective – and cost-efficient. These may be the work of local small businesses or of companies working with AHSNs in other parts of the country; they may be in our national NHS accelerator programmes or they may be the result of collaborations by health and care partners.
Once we have helped the organisation to identify and articulate their need, we will identify relevant products through our Innovation Exchange process. To simplify the selection of products we have created eight themes based on what we know are the high-level redesign challenges of local partners.
These themes are described below and in our brochure, Our offer to health and social care. If we are contacted in the early stages of the search for a solution or change, we can help to avoid unnecessary duplication of existing resources.
In addition, we can provide support with improvement and change management with courses delivered by our Coaching Academy. If patient and public involvement is being considered, we can help through our PPI team and Senate with co-production of new pathways and solutions.
