The NHS has long welcomed innovation in all of its forms and even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the institution was having to rapidly change the way care was delivered to serve an ageing population. It is no secret that digital innovation has the potential to revolutionise healthcare delivery to empower self care, improve workflow efficiency and increase quality. We have all witnessed a similar phenomenon in many industries to date.
The impact of innovation
Over many years working in digital transformation and health technology research, we have listened to hundreds of innovators describing their products. They all promise to improve patient outcomes and make cost savings to the system in a wide variety of ways, from wearables to remote medical record access, artificial intelligence and everything in between. For innovators it is important to recognise that despite these benefits, innovations can bring additional pressure to clinical teams, often diverting staff from front-line duties. This can occur through exploratory conversations, evidence gathering, advocacy, consultancy, patient engagement or budgetary investigation. Each day clinical teams are approached by a great many innovators with promises of help - having your technology recognised in a busy and complex market is therefore a significant challenge.
