Case studies

Health Innovation Networks have a vital role in helping the NHS meet the challenges of 21st century health and care. We find solutions to health and care challenges – individually and collectively we use our unique connections with the NHS, universities, industry, patients and the third sector. We identify and support the development of proven innovations and work together to spread these at pace and scale.

The Health Innovation Networks project pipeline identifies, assesses, prioritises and supports innovations with potential to improve healthcare delivery and outcomes, from development of early concept ideas through to deployment at scale of proven technologies.

Projects enter the pipeline from many sources – from individual clinical innovators through small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to national and international corporations.

The pipeline has three phases, with some overlap between them:

Real world examples of how the Oxford AHSN supports this process are set out in these case studies:

Discover – Creating value propositions for innovations at an early stage of their development

Develop – Delivering the value propositions of innovations for which there is a confirmed need

Deploy – Delivering the value proposition benefits of proven innovations
