Welcome to our annual review for 2019-20. We take a look back at of some of the achievements of the past year and how they form part of the innovation journey. We can’t do any of this alone, so we focus on building strong relationships and working with our regional health and care providers to match solutions to the needs they identify.

We see innovation as a journey, sometimes illustrated as a spiral, showing ideas growing to have real impact. Here we outline how our work programme includes projects and activities across the whole innovation journey.
Invention is the discovery phase in the innovation journey. Read how some of our programmes such as Create Open Health, the Future of Care events and our Innovation Exchange portal support this stage of the innovation journey
This phase is is all about experimenting, prototyping, testing and making a business case. Our Health Innovation Programme, Learning Disabilities Collaborative and Future Challenge programme are all examples of how to support innovation.
This phase is about delivering and implementing, then growing and scaling an idea or solution, which is exactly what our Evidence into Practice, ReSPECT and PreciSSIon programmes have been doing in the last year.
The impact phase in the innovation journey happens when we start changing systems and helping innovations take root, such as through the Innovation Technology Payment programme, PReCePT and our work to ensure safer care of the detoriorating patient.
