Catalyst for Health and Social Care Industrial Innovation in Scotland Summary- August 2019
What is the Catalyst?
The Catalyst stimulates collaboration between NHS Boards, Integrated Joint Boards and Innovators on priority areas of need where solutions to operational delivery problems are not presently available or affordable in Scotland. These can be services, products or processes that would increase productivity in health and social care and/or lead to better outcomes.
The HIAP innovation team is currently re-tasked to areas that are directly supporting the current Covid19 supply chain challenges for Health and Social Care in Scotland.
We have been delighted to see a particularly large number of offers of support around the current crisis and a mailbox has been set up to triage, assess, and forward innovations to the appropriate area of speciality. There is a large team monitoring the mailbox to. deal with these as quickly and effectively as possible
