Healthcare Innovation EXPO 2011 (9th and 10th March)

Innovation ExpoThe Healthcare Innovation Expo 2011 attracted over 7,000 visitors with the NHS Institute hosting over 40 seminars, an exhibition stand and a master class presented by Helen Bevan.

At the heart of our seminar programme we had two rooms with over 20 sessions covering a range of innovation and improvement areas including design, pathway innovation, patient experience and joined up care.

The Productive Care national QIPP workstream delivered a series of sessions demonstrating how The Productives can help organisations meet the QIPP agenda. There was also a touching speech from a former Papworth Hospital patient, who shared his view of the care he received in a “Productive‟ ward in which he stated “The Productive Ward saved my life.”

Helen's master class on creating contagious commitment to change for quality and cost improvement was supported by a seminar stream exploring how to deliver quality and cost and improvement at scale by developing compelling messages and a contagious commitment to action.

Finally the Innovation Challenge Prizes showcased four applications from the first round as well as raising awareness of the programme.

Opportunity to be featured on a personal copy of HSJFeedback from the organisers and comments from delegates have confirmed that the seminars were a big success. Many had standing room only. We also had a very positive response to our stand in the main hall where delegates had the opportunity to be featured on a personal copy of HSJ.



Voting for Culture of Innovation surveyWe were also visited early on day one by our ministerial sponsor, Earl Howe, who cast his vote in our Culture of Innovation survey, a stand feature which also proved popular with many delegates.

Overall the team is sure that the combination of seminars and our stand presence helped participants to increase their understanding of our offer to support innovation and improvement of health services.
