Split into three categories, these competition themes focus on potential areas where technology solutions can play a role and where we complement other funding initiatives that have an impact on this area, such as DALLAS and the recent SBRI Healthcare calls in areas such as falls and incontinence in the frail elderly.
In consultation with clinicians, paramedics, GPs and operations managers working in emergency admissions, we have identified three challenge themes (“categories”) where there is the potential for innovative solutions to reduce pressures on emergency services.
Whilst some projects in these category areas are already underway, there is a sense that more needs to be done and integration with other systems is key. We expect applicants to learn from these projects and to address the gaps and shortfalls in their proposals.
Keep up to date with developements in previous and future competitions.
