Innovator support is provided by all AHSNs, and the Network Innovation Pathway sets out the range of services offered.
The Oxford AHSN is working with industry and its NHS partners to create the conditions and opportunities for companies to grow and access the home market for revenue generation. Our partners are already developing innovative models of care effectively creating a lit runway for innovations to follow.
Key considerations when commercialising a product for the NHS are:
- How will the product or service change clinical practice?
- Will the innovation enable a new model of care?
- What is the clinical, economic and social impact of the technology?
- How will these impacts be measured?
- Is a redesign required in healthcare pathways to take full advantage of these impacts?
- How will the redesign be funded?
- What are the dissemination routes?
These questions originated from the Accelerated Access Review and we have developed this interactive guide to help you on your way. We are on hand to support you throughout the process, providing you with signposting to local partners and services, as well as guidance on navigating the local eco-system.
Oxford AHSN has created its own runway to adoption interactive guide with resources and guidance for each step of the adoption pathway.
