The medical and life science sector is an increasingly important part of the knowledge economy yet the medical innovation process takes too long and is too costly resulting in delays in addressing unmet clinical need despite unprecedented scientific advance: The innovation process itself demands innovation. Those that learn how to 'work smarter' will reap the rewards and benefit their patients.
Academic Health Solutions draws on thought leadership and expertise prepared to challenge convention and help optimise the medical innovation pathway for clients, maximising the adoption and diffusion of new products and services. We take an holistic view of the pipeline using a 'Translational Readiness' tool to reveal areas for improvement, and tackle specific issues or complete system redesign.
For prospective investors we provide synthesised judgements on the scientific validity, clinical utility and the likelihood of adoption of prospective innovations to help them make the right investment decisions. For research establishments and academic health partnerships we help with the co-development of enterprise strategies, focusing on both 'push' factors - e.g. the focus of research effort, the tractability of the science, trial recruitment optimisation etc, as well as those that 'pull' innovation into the system - e.g. needs assessment, enhancing adherence, addressing value.
