New digital gateway for innovations
The Innovation Agency has relaunched the Innovation Agency Exchange, our online forum for colleagues across the healthcare sector to share innovations and challenges.
The expanded website now enables users to collaborate on ideas, projects and products to improve patient care.
By sharing local health and care needs via the platform these will be visible to a wide network of innovators and suppliers who can help to address the issues.
The Innovation Agency Exchange also acts as a search engine for outstanding innovations, providing inspiration, knowledge and resources. Find it here.
The relaunch of the Innovation Agency Exchange coincides with the launch of a new national Innovation Exchange digital gateway, hosted by the national AHSN Network.
This complements our local digital gateway; it can help companies to access expert opinion, funding opportunities and a directory of partner organisations.
Innovation Agency Chief Executive Dr Liz Mear said: “The Innovation Agency and our fellow AHSNs are calling on health and care partners to share their challenges so we can highlight their needs to the fantastic innovators in our region and nationally.
“Collectively we can bring together the brightest minds and best talent and skills to bring more innovations into use, for the benefit or our population.”
The new national Innovation Exchange digital gateway is specifically tailored for innovators, providing insights from NHS teams across the 15 AHSN regions on the big challenges they face; case studies sharing innovator success stories and links to key players in the national health innovation sector.
