EMAHSN Innovation Exchange Workshops
Successful delivery of the five East Midlands Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) are of vital importance to improving patient care and delivering essential efficiency savings. Proven innovations produced by industry in collaboration with NHS and 3rd sector organisations will be at the heart of NHS transformation across the region.
The East Midlands Academic Health Science Network (EMAHSN) is working with the region’s STPs, Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and provider organisations to deliver a programme of proven innovations that support the transformation of healthcare.
The programme will focus on patients with the following Long Term Conditions:
• Respiratory diseases
• Cardiovascular diseases
We are also looking for innovative ways to reduce falls amongst our older people living with frailty.
Initial data analysis has shown that in the last year the NHS in the East Midlands spent over £175m on outpatient appointments and emergency admissions related to these three Long Term Conditions.
Specific objectives for the programme include:
- Reduction or elimination of wasteful and unnecessary acute based outpatient appointments for this cohort of patients
- Increasing efficiency of care for these Long Term Conditions in primary care (particularly related to GP activity)
- Reduction in instances of escalation and emergency acute admissions for this cohort
The workshops will provide an informal platform for attendees from the NHS, social care and industry to review current clinical pathways, transformation plans and innovations, and work together to identify sustainable solutions.
The event is not a ‘pitching’ opportunity for new products, it is an opportunity to have round table discussions with multi-disciplinary teams and individuals, to co-produce transformative solutions.
