Health Innovation KSS have released a new guide aimed at helping early-stage innovators to measure and demonstrate the impact of their innovations and solutions in real-world settings.

Developed in collaboration with our evaluation partner, Unity Insights, the “Real-World Evaluation Guide” provides innovators with a comprehensive framework to conduct their first evaluation, with a view to supporting adoption and scale in the NHS.

Helping innovators make a case for adoption

“Too often, we see promising new innovations that are not backed up by robust evidence of their real-world impact, or early-stage innovators who have conducted evaluations that have missing data,” said Nuala Foley, Associate Director Commercial and Enterprise at Health Innovation KSS. “This guide supports innovators to effectively evaluate their products and make a case for adoption in the NHS.”

The guide covers the following key aspects:

  • Defining the problem statement
  • Evidence gathering
  • Piloting your innovation
  • Designing the evaluation
  • Presenting your findings

Having solid evidence that demonstrates a new product’s value in a real-world health and care context is critical for getting NHS stakeholder buy-in and facilitating wider-scale adoption.

The Real-World Evaluation Guide is available to download now.
