Latest events

Whilst we are unable to run face to face events due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are looking at what can be delivered virtually.

Under normal circumstances we run a series of events, often in partnership, to support innovators, health providers and patients turn great ideas into positive health impact.

For example if you are looking to develop and commercialise your innovations, our insight to impact workshops, clinical innovator or scale-up academy events are a great opportunity to meet peers, hear from experts, debate key topics and access 1:1 support to develop your idea. The MedTechBOOST programme we initiated in 2019 brings together researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and early stage start-ups to develop, validate and design solutions to some of the biggest health challenges. The topic in 2019 was mental health and healthy ageing and we are looking forward to running this event again in 2020 when restrictions are eased.

We also convene senior leaders and industry experts at our regional leaders innovation forums to discuss, debate and make connections to help solve some of the biggest issues faced in health and care.

Our innovation exchange events are designed to match innovators with local healthcare providers around specific challenges and our medical directors masterclasses bring together senior clinicians from trusts across our region to share best practice and learn about innovation in our region.

Insights to Impact Masterclass: How can industry navigate the new integrated care systems (ICS)?

14:00-16:00, Wednesday 22 June 2022 – virtual event

Integrated care systems (ICSs) aim to integrate care across different organisations and settings, joining up hospital and community-based services, physical and mental health, and health and social care. All parts of England are now covered by one of 42 ICSs

Despite being effectively mandated by NHS England and NHS Improvement for some time now, ICSs have no basis in legal legislation. However, in July 2022 this is set to change from when ICS and their boards will have statutory duties.

With this in mind, Eastern AHSN wanted to provide an opportunity for health companies and innovators to gain an understanding of how to best navigate these new systems and to understand how they are structured.

Join the team at our virtual masterclass to learn more about the ICS landscape and gain insights into the key priorities for these statutory bodies.

Event Audience: Innovators, start ups, SMEs and clinical entrepreneurs with digital solutions in healthcare who wish to access the NHS or international healthcare markets
