For Innovators

What is the Innovation Exchange?

The Innovation Agency Exchange provides an online forum for colleagues across the healthcare sector to share innovative solutions, projects and products to improve patient care.

It is managed by the Innovation Agency, an Academic Health and Science Network (AHSN) for the North West Coast, which connects people working in the NHS, health and social care professionals, businesses, organisations and individuals looking for improved, more efficient ways of working.

The Innovation Exchange is a platform for innovators to share and showcase new innovations which can improve patient outcomes and experiences, provide cost-effective solutions and accelerate the delivery of safer, better care.  Please note, your innovation will not be published on the Innovation Agency Exchange until it has been reviewed by our expert panel.

In order to gain maximum exposure for the products and services that are featured on the Innovation Exchange, people are able to view information without having to register. As such, we recommend that you only share information which you are happy to have in the public domain. Please ensure that you do not share unprotected Intellectual Property (IP). Whilst The Innovation Agency review information prior to it being published on the Innovation Exchange, we are unable to accept responsibility for the sharing of unprotected intellectual property. If you would like your project to remain private so that only you and staff at the Yorkshire & Humber AHSN and The Innovation Agency can see the project details, please use the ‘make private’ button when entering your project information.

Should you have any queries about this, please contact us.
