|NHS England; Not all is ‘doom & gloom’ in the NHS|
Four innovations that will be fast-tracked into use through NHS England’s Innovation & Technology Payment programme.
The scheme delivers improvements in patient care by cutting bureaucracy for clinicians & other innovators and encouraging uptake through the NHS. NHS England has also announced £1.5m to pump prime the spread of innovations including DrDoctor, a nationally backed trial of a technology to cut missed hospital appointments.
Promising developments are sometimes not adopted because of a lack of evidence to support their use. The money found by NHS England will fund real world evaluation of innovations.
Heart patients among those to benefit as NHS England backs innovation ~ Innovative care ~ Technology at heart of a future ‘improved & cost efficient’ NHS ~ Healthy funding ~ With medical staff costs continually rising, we need other alternatives ~ An example of why the NHS has to continually ‘invest’ in research / pilot schemes ~ We must break the habit of decades and commercialise UK inventions in the UK ~ NHS innovates to provide better care
