Real world evaluation is informed by regional and local NHS needs. It seeks to provide the information and evidence needed to enable adoption of innovations in different settings.
The Oxford AHSN Strategic and Industry Partnerships programme supports real world evaluation of new innovations by identifying where to test them based on local needs and priorities, project managing the process of baseline data collection, protocol creation and implementation.
