Remote type 2 education platform selected for NHS Innovation
A low-cost, online self-management platform for people with diabetes and a fully remote programme of type 2 diabetes structured education are among the latest technologies selected to join the NHS Innovation Accelerator (NIA).
A total of 11 innovations have been selected as part of an event to launch the third year of this NHS England initiative, delivered in partnership with England’s 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs).
The NIA has supported the uptake and spread of 25 high-impact, evidence-based innovations across 799 NHS organisations since it launched in July 2015.
Each of the new innovations joining the NIA this year offer solutions to key challenges in primary care, urgent and emergency care and mental health. Recruitment onto the NIA follows an international call and robust selection process, including review by a collegiate of over 100 assessors and the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
Simon Stevens, NHS England chief executive said: “Modern medicine is on the cusp of a huge shift in how care is delivered, and practical innovations like these show how NHS patients will now directly benefit. More tests and patient monitoring will be done at home or on the move, without the need to pitch up to a doctor’s appointment or hospital outpatients.”
