This seminar will provide a timely opportunity to consider the next steps for innovation in medicines, technology and services for healthcare, and the impact on outcomes, efficiency and patient experience. Delegates will discuss the challenges faced by NHS England, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Academic Health and Science Networks as they promote research and innovation in healthcare, and will consider the ways in which they can work best with providers to increasingly improve patient care, decrease mortality rates and contribute to a reduction in NHS expenditure. With the Medical Innovation Bill - which aims to encourage responsible scientific experimentation in medicine - currently in Parliament, and with value-based pricing due to be introduced in January 2014, further sessions will focus on how obstacles to developing new healthcare technologies and medicines can be overcome, the ways in which regulatory bodies can facilitate and encourage the advancement of innovation, and how dissemination and adoption of best practice can be encouraged throughout the health service.
