SPARKLER is a pioneering EMAHSN service that searches and collates evidence in relation to an issue of concern to a healthcare organisation, synthesising key information from multiple sources to inform service improvement and transformation. This ensures that the service change is evidence based, and thus can be spread at pace and scale.
During the year NHS England established a national network of Patient Safety Collaboratives (PSCs) including one for the East Midlands developed by EMAHSN. We consulted and engaged with our partners to develop consensus on key patient safety priorities. Areas have been identified and are focused on supporting, building and championing effective leadership and development of a safety culture. This includes support for older people, suicide, delirium, restraint and transition of care.
Innovation Exchanges are events that cover a specific clinical area which, in consultation with our partners, are identified as a health and social care priority for the East Midlands. They are designed to inform industry and others on the key priorities and challenges in the area with a view to identifying applicable innovative products and services. The events are followed by a call for proposals from industry, third sector, NHS and public health organisations for projects promoting putting into practice at pace and scale proven innovations addressing one or more of the key needs in the specified area. In 2014-15 we held two Innovation Exchanges covering cancer and diabetes. Each event was attended by more than 150 representatives from all sectors across the region.
