By this stage in the process you will have a strong, validated business case and strategy.
But while you may have convinced the NHS in Kent, Surrey and Sussex that your product is worth considering, how does the fall of this particular domino lead to wider interest?
Through our Innovation Exchange, we regularly share information with the other 14 AHSNs across England, so that we don’t all do everything from scratch.
When we share details of your product it will be clear that it has been process tested and successfully completed a test bed that validates its potential – opening up access to the market for your product.
This can be a gateway to faster spread and adoption of your technology, which means more patients benefit more quickly.
It widens and strengthens your reach into the market, helping to topple any dominoes that may stand in the way of wider adoption.
