Innovation – What does it mean for you?

Time: 12.30-1.30pm
Location: Pop up university - PUU3

The NHS claims innovation is critical to enable and achieve its ambitions to deliver better care for patients while improving financial outcomes. 
But innovation doesn’t magically happen. It starts with driven individuals, pioneers and leaders, whose impact may be limited if the context is not welcoming new ideas and individual initiatives.

Startups are faster and better at innovating, because the ‘right to fail’ is a given. It’s better to try and fail, rather than not try at all. But is it also the case within the NHS? How far is innovation welcome? Would you risk your job if you went a little too far? Can we make users our allies?

From structural reforms to process re-engineering, addressing challenges of all NHS managers and health professionals, this workshop led by Dr. Charles Alessi – Chief Clinical Officer at HIMSS International, will discuss innovation strategies at all levels and provide key insights that will help you unleash the innovator in you. Andy Kinnear, SCW Director of Digital Transformation is part of the panel sharing his experiences.
