Overview:
Patient safety is the avoidance of unintended or unexpected harm to people during the delivery of health and care services. We are seeking novel medical technology solutions (medical devices, equipment, diagnostics, medical software, IT platforms, mobile apps) that prevent or reduce avoidable harm to patients across hospitals, primary care, community care, mental health services and care homes.

Improving safety is about reducing risk and minimising mistakes. Through the Eastern Patient Safety Collaborative the region aims to support NHS Improvement’s national workstreams in maternity, culture and deterioration.

NHS staff are best placed to conceive and design such technology solutions. We are therefore seeking Idea Owners to come forward with their novel technology ideas to improve patient safety in a continually evolving NHS. By way of example, and by no means limiting, some areas of interest are listed for inspiration :

• Technologies that will deliver safer patient transfer and improved integrated care across different care settings.

• Safer dressings, tubing, syringes, infusion pumps, heart valves, surgical instruments, resuscitators, radiotherapy machines, walking frames or other assistive technology products.

• Technologies to eliminate the risk of so-called ‘never events’ and that prevent sepsis, pressure ulcers and infections in care settings.

• Smarter patient monitoring (continuous and remote, in real time) to improve patient outcomes, including response to deterioration.

• Medications safety.
