Test your innovation in the NHS - learn about the Test Beds Programme and how to apply


Posted on 15 May 2015 (Permalink)

Do you have an innovative health solution with the potential to simultaneously improve clinical and financial outcomes within the NHS? Are you looking to work collaboratively with NHS teams to deliver a rapid, robust evaluation in a real world setting?

On 26 March 2015 NHS England, together with the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs), invited innovators from the UK and globally to express an interest in deploying and testing their innovations in the flagship ‘test beds’ initiative.

Test beds will serve as real world sites for evaluating ‘combinatorial’ innovations that integrate new technologies with new ways of delivering health services – and that offer the prospect of better care, and better patient experience of care, at lower overall cost.

How to take part

Join us on 27 May from 6pm to 7pm for an Online Briefing Session where you will learn about the programme and application process:

  • Test beds programme leaders will explain the vision, application process and requirements.
  • A Q&A session will give innovators an opportunity to ask any questions they have about the programme via the webinar platform.

Live Briefing Session in London

There will be a Live Briefing Session in London on 21 May. This session is now sold out, but the entire event will be recorded and videos of the presentations will be made available after the event.

The live and online briefing events are aimed at UK and global innovators. If you are an NHS or social care organisation interested in becoming a test bed site, you can attend a Q&A teleconference by registering here.
