AHSN Atlas of Solutions in Healthcare launched

Posted on 12 September 2016 (Permalink)

Developed with input from all 15 AHSNs, the AHSN Atlas of Solutions is an online tool for sharing examples of proven innovation that are making a positive difference both to people’s lives, and NHS efficiency. 

Access the new tool at atlas.ahsnnetwork.com

Launched on 7 September at Expo, the Atlas provides a snapshot of some of the country’s best healthcare innovations. It describes the problems they were introduced to address, and the impressive outcomes to date. The aim is to share these examples, spread best practice and help speed and scale up the adoption of innovation across health and care. 

Each example meets one or more of the gaps identified by the NHS in its Five Year Forward View: improving quality; impact on health and wellbeing; and increasing efficiency. 

Case studies include a description of the problem, how it was tackled, the end benefits to patients, populations and the service involved and contacts for enquiries. The AHSN Atlas of Solutions in Healthcare will grow with additional case studies added as results become available.  

It can be accessed directly at atlas.ahsnnetwork.com , via the AHSN Network website, or via NHS Improvement’s Improvement Directory.
