Following on from the success of The innovator's roadmap: From idea to reality RSM professionals and NHS Innovations South West are pleased to announce their next venture, the Digital healthcare innovation series.

 A series of four practical innovation commercialisation support events.  Each event will see speakers share their experience under the broad banner of medical/healthcare innovation with an overarching highly relevant and topical digital theme, specifically the central importance of data.

A one-day course on practical ways to innovate digital ideas successfully drawing on the approach delivered by NISW.  With only a limited number of delegate places available per course you are advised to book now.

Innovation can come from anyone, anywhere in the system

This course is appropriate for those “clinical entrepreneurs” looking to progress a technology “ Internet of things”, wearables, sensors, assistive devices innovation project. 
This session will provide you with core innovation theory and best practice techniques, as well as sharing of “real-life” examples and lessons learned. 
Practical theory sessions will be delivered by Rod Howells from NHS Innovation South West (NISW) and discussion sessions supported and facilitated by Angus Donald and Mike McMillan from NISW.
Success is seeing ideas become reality
To review the impact on the delivery of health of the integration and connectivity across multiple systems, and devices, the internet of things, and to reflect on the development of innovation in healthcare.
  • To understand what is meant by “innovation” in the context of healthcare and the basis of progress from design, through development to implementation
  • To know about some successful innovators and innovations in healthcare
  • To understand the range of potential components that are the “internet of things”
  • To understand the impact of connecting wearing sensors on the management of epilepsy and diabetes
