ICHP helps promote collaboration between industry and the health & social care system of NW London to implement innovative technology and adopt novel ways of working, all with the goal of improving access, quality and outcomes for patients, the NHS workforce and associated industries.
Through the Innovation Exchange, we utilise our unique expertise and cross-sector connections as an AHSN to identify common challenges and quickly bring people and organisations together to develop, test and spread proven innovations that improve our economy and patients’ lives.
We support our Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) to articulate their needs and identify proven solutions to existing challenges.
We help innovators identify where they are on the pathway to taking their product to market, signpost to relevant sources of support, and advise on the steps they need to follow from idea to adoption to help bring their innovation to the NHS.
Through our Discover-NOW Health Data Research Hub of Real World Evidence, we can provide real world data to support the testing, validation and evaluation of innovations, in a variety of settings.
We support the adoption of innovations identified by the Accelerated Access Collaborative, as well as other market-ready innovations that meet local need.
ICHP’s offer to industry includes three main components. We believe that the greatest benefit for our health and care system can be achieved when we can combine all three.
We work with our local NHS system in North West London to understand their needs, identify solutions that can meet these needs, and provide support these innovators to enter the NHS market and provide benefit to our local system
