Better outcomes for patients, clinicians and communities

Increasing demand combined with less funding is creating a number of challenges for the NHS and as a result, the use of digital innovations has surged. The Access Group and North-East London NHS Foundation Trust are developing new integrated approaches to healthcare including a Virtual Ward programme, which aims to deliver better outcomes for patients, clinicians and communities.

Evidence-based research

The goal of advancing healthcare is, of course, to get the latest, most effective treatments to the patient. That often tricky road is made easier to follow thanks to the evidence-based research provided by companies such as Genesis Research Group. Their CEO, David W. Miller, discusses how they help companies all over the world innovate differently through agile, technology-enabled research partnerships to further improve patient outcomes.

Delivering sight saving injections

Anti-VEGF injections are now used to treat several blinding and previously untreatable conditions. The SP.eye is a novel device designed to help healthcare providers adapt to the increased demand, by offering a quick and safe method to deliver these sight saving injections. The inventor of the SP.eye Sam Evans and Consultant Ophthalmologist at Singleton Eye Department, Gwyn Williams, discuss the need for innovation and advancement in intravitreal injections, whether it has improved efficiency, and what the future look like for anti-VEGF medicine.
