This report gives an update on the implementation of the NHS Chief Executive’s “Innovation health and wealth: accelerating adoption and diffusion in the NHS” report, published in December 2011, defining the Department of Health’s agenda for delivering innovation throughout the NHS. Further steps are to include building IHW into the NHS Commissioning Board and the new NHS architecture, and to raise awareness about IHW.
The aim remains to embed innovation into the NHS and improve outcomes and quality for patients.
