NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) fellows guest blog


Posted by |

At Redcentric, innovation is at the heart of everything we do: whether that’s new products or services, or simply the way that we work with our customers. Despite perceptions, the public sector – specifically the NHS - is no different. With reducing budgets and increasing demand, the NHS has had to put innovation at the heart of its programmes in order to deliver against the NHS Outcomes Framework.

Indeed NHS England writes this on its website, “Innovation is critical to enabling NHS England to achieve the ambitions set out in the Mandate, to ramp up the pace and scale of change, and deliver better outcomes for patients across all five domains of the NHS Outcomes Framework.”

This was one the reasons it launched its NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) fellowship programme in collaboration with UCL Partners, The Health Foundation and the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs). The aim of NIA is to “create the conditions and cultural change necessary for proven innovations to adopted faster and more systematically through the NHS.”

The fellowship programme has seen some incredible, game (and life) changing solutions come through: ones that can and will make a real difference through technology to patient care and outcomes.

We’ve invited a few of those NIA fellows to share their perspectives on innovation as a guest blog here on our website.

We start with Francis White from AliveCor.
