On 22 February, the Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) hosted the NHS Innovation Showcase for the NHS innovator community to support them to develop a dynamic and effective relationship with the NHS so that patients continue to get access to the best new treatments faster.
The inaugural showcase was timed to coincide with the start of NHS’ 75th birthday year, providing an opportunity to celebrate the individuals, ideas and programmes at the heart of innovation in the NHS today.
Innovations spotlighted at the event included tech to reduce elective backlogs and to free up clinical time. AI that can predict patients likely to miss appointments, CVD detecting smartphone enabled monitoring and diagnosis, non-invasive and inexpensive early cancer detection tech and much more.
Innovations helping relieve the pressure, tackling health inequalities and providing ground-breaking diagnosis and treatments and improving patient and clinical outcomes.
Matt Whitty, Chief Executive of the Accelerated Access Collaborative and Director of Innovation, Research and Life Sciences, has written a blog about the NHS’s enduring legacy and commitment to innovation, which can be read here.
