The NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA) is to host a series of information events in partnership with local Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) - including one in Birmingham - to demonstrate how NHS commissioners and providers can be reimbursed for the procurement of cost-saving, outcomes-based innovations.
The ‘Improving outcomes, cutting costs’ events will specifically showcase the five NIA innovations available to procure via central funding and the new Innovation and Technology Tariff (ITT) from 1 April 2017. NHS England will also be introducing the ITT and providing insight as to how it will work.
Attendees will be able to access some of the country’s best evidence-based innovations and be reimbursed by NHS England; learn how these innovations have improved efficiencies, benefitted patients and secured cost savings across other NHS organisations; meet the NIA Fellows who represent these innovations and see first-hand how they work; and find out how to replicate these benefits across your organisation.
These innovations include:
The events are aimed at procurement leads, medical and clinical directors/leads, nursing directors, transformation leads, STP leads and Directors of Surgical Services across local clinical commissioning groups and provider organisations.
Register via the links below to attend one of four events in Birmingham, Leeds, Oxford and London. Places are limited, so attendees are advised to register as soon as possible.
