FLOWOPOLY: Innovating to support patients to spend more days at home

Thursday 28 March, 12.00pm – 5.00pm
Royal College of Nursing, 20 Cavendish Square, London

Imperial College Health Partners (ICHP) – in partnership with North West London ICS – is
 hosting an innovation network event, bringing together NHS, Local Authority and Social Care colleagues with Patients and Carers, Innovators, and Third Sector Organisations, to explore possible solutions and inspire a ‘networked innovation’ approach to NW London’s Mission to enable more days at home for our residents.  

We are looking to welcome innovator and industry partners to this event to explore a breadth of solutions that could enable an improved acute pathway which connects patient need with the most suitable care provider.   

Do you have an innovation that could do just that? If you’re interested in representing your innovation at this event, which will also include the opportunity to pitch to a room of engaged health and care colleagues in our gamified approach to the pathway, please submit an expression of interest. 

We are asking interested parties to complete our expression of interest form by demonstrating how their innovation could positively impact the patient journey outlined in our Case Study.

The deadline for submitting an EOI is Friday 23 February. ICHP will shortlist entries and invite up to 20 innovator and industry partners to join this event. If successful, you will be notified by Friday 1 March.  

If you have any questions or would like an informal chat with the team, please email Olivia Zheng, Innovation Advisor: olivia.zheng@imperialcollegehealthpartners.com.
