Detailed Programme Information
Our evaluation team has evaluated our internal events, training and network collaboratives to ensure that our content and structure are offering the most benefit to our stakeholders and the health and care system more widely.
Through our Innovation Exchange, our team have worked with innovators seeking to spread:
We were commissioned by West of England AHSN to evaluate the impact of KiActiv® Health a personalised and guided online intervention that empowers participants to optimise physical activity within their everyday lives. The evaluation has enabled the innovator and commissioners to understand the impact of KiActiv® for patients with COPD and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the it’s potential for wider spread and adoption.
In December 2020, we supported Healthwave Limited to secure £155k from Innovate UK to assess inequality of access to NHS healthcare during the COVID-19 crisis. The consortium, led by Healthwave Limited in partnership with the South West AHSN and Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), is exploring how people access digital health and care services during the pandemic and will recommend improvements.
Health & Care Videos in the Torbay surgical pathway
We have supported the commissioning of an economic evaluation and modelling for the use of videos provided by Health and Care Videos (HCV) in the cardiac resynchronisation therapy (CRT) and pacemaker pathways in Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust. The evaluation and modelling will aim to support the trust to make informed decisions about where videos may best support the patient journey in other surgical pathways.
If you have an evaluation project in mind that you are looking to progress or you are interested in arranging bespoke training for your organisation, please contact Lynnette Chapman.
