We are running projects within the West of England for local and regional adoption of innovation and are also working with other AHSNs to select projects for national adoption.
We have assisted businesses with local adoption of their innovations through our Diabetes Digital Coach challenge. Through a process of selection, five companies have been selected for the evaluation of each of their innovative products by our member organisations. Once the evaluation is complete, a report will be shared accross the network’s member organisations who commission and provide healthcare services across our region with a population of 2.4 million people.
We have also been working with our members to implement evidence-based best practice locally and regionally. Currently, our Don’t wait to anticoagulate project is being rolled out with 75% of GP practices in the Gloucestershire CCG area. Phase 3 of the project will spread this to the other West of England CCGs as well as working with other AHSNs more widely.
