The Oxford AHSN Strategic and Industry Partnerships strategy focuses on four areas where enhancement and opportunity improvements can impact the region’s attractiveness. These are:
- Supporting companies along the innovation pathway following our runway to adoption
- Supporting investment into the region
- Building a culture of innovation in the NHS
- Building long-term partnerships with industry and other organisations
The Strategic and Industry Partnerships programme provides an opportunity for the whole innovation pathway to be joined together in a way that has not been done before following our runway to adoption – from concept, through invention, development and finally adoption.
Our role is to help bring together the academic, clinical and business communities together through innovative partnerships and build greater alignment across the innovation pathway. We work with all stakeholders that have an interest in innovation and where appropriate the development and commercial realisation of new healthcare ideas. This includes industry, investors, clinicians, charities, academics and entrepreneurs.
We help to ensure that great ideas from the NHS, universities and industry are converted into products and services that create value for patients within and beyond our region.
We inform the NHS about cost-effective innovations that enable health professionals to use these technologies to improve the outcome and experience of patients.
We look to support any new product or service that delivers benefit to patients including pharmaceutical, medical devices, digital and diagnostics.
