As part of the AHSN Innovation Exchange, we support our Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to identify proven solutions to existing challenges.
This work is done through close and continued collaboration with our NHS partners to understand and identify their most pressing clinical needs and challenges, and what would enable them to promote health equality and best practice in our region.
The AHSN uses the feedback from our partners to match new and existing healthcare innovations with those clinicians and partners who can best work with industry to take the innovation forward into practice. The innovations to match up to these needs will be identified via the Oxford AHSN Innovation Exchange where innovators will respond to focused calls, giving the team details of their innovations so that they can be matched to local needs, or to the needs of other AHSN regions. This exchange across the AHSN network is part of a co-ordinated approach to identifying, selecting and supporting the adoption of those innovations that will improve our economy, and patient’s lives.
