HIYH Impact Report 2023 | Page 3


Our role acting as a bridge between different sectors means we help to build a pipeline of solutions for the NHS from research , product development and evaluation through to implementation and commercialisation . For example :
• Our work with Klinik and the Priory Medical Group on a real-world evaluation to assess the benefits of their patient flow management system found that the Primary Care Network saved £ 300,000 and reduced patient calls from 99 % to 30 % of all contacts ( page 55 ).
• The SENTINEL PLUS project has now spread from its origins as a pilot in our region – where 2,948 patients benefitted and 725 metric tonnes of eCO2 emissions were saved – to 305 Primary Care Networks across the country ( page 29 ).
• We have supported the adoption and implementation of remote monitoring solutions across more than 100 sites in our region , benefitting 4,289 patients ( page 30 ).

Delivering these projects also generates a wealth of learnings , enabling us to share good practice and provide tangible resources to support frontline staff engaged in innovation . This year for example , we produced a suite of resources to help NHS colleagues implement virtual wards and remote monitoring solutions in their own organisations .
Because the spread of innovation is a complex and continually evolving journey , we work with innovator companies to guide and support them at the crucial moments of their growth , sometimes over several years . As this year ’ s impact report coincides with the end of our second five-year license period , we ’ re taking the opportunity to shine a spotlight on some of the innovators we ’ ve supported across that period . We ’ ve provided guidance and input at various critical stages of their development , from their first introduction to our region to the subsequent spread of their innovations across the country . Find out more about how we ’ ve supported Healthy . io ( page 33 ), Digibete ( page 52 ), Doc Abode ( page 63 ), and PinPoint ( page 42 ) in our Innovator Spotlight articles spread throughout the report .
Continuing with the theme of how we support innovators , this year we have been able to expand our digital health accelerator programme , Propel @ YH , through the extension of our Boot Camp . This has enabled international innovators to bring ground-breaking health technology into the region ( page 17 ). In January we hosted eight Nordic innovators in Leeds as well as taking the programme overseas for the first time to India . We ’ ve also taken strides forward in our work to help UK innovators grow their businesses overseas through our partnerships with the Department for Business and Trade ( DBT ) and the Association of British HealthTech Industries ( ABHI ). You can find out more about how we have helped C2-Ai to do this on page 22 .
