A year-long pilot scheme will be run by Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) to assist executives of the National Health Service (NHS) in making the most of available technology to maximize potential and streamline health care operations.
The Health Innovation Placement is a new program from Health Education England’s Digital Readiness Programme, which is associated with ARU’s existing Clinical Entrepreneur Program.
The program aims to instill a new mindset in the NHS by assisting employees in embracing digital solutions and generating ideas that can be used for day-to-day work.
ARU also aspires to build a network of digital leaders committed to driving change from the inside out through the program.
NHS clinical and non-clinical leaders, as well as NHS personnel who wish to expand their leadership capabilities and experience, will begin the part-time program in February, collaborating with startups and SMEs to solve problems and improve digital skills.
Workshops, placement time with SMEs, menatoring, and customized leadership training are among the learning and development possibilities available to participants.
Participants will have a greater grasp of how digital may alter their organization and the role they can play in that transformation, as well as encourage others to adopt digital solutions.
The application portal is accessible until Jan. 30, and the program will be off with a virtual launch event on Feb. 24, with an initial cohort of 10 to 20 NHS leaders.
To accompany their written application, applicants will be required to produce a 60-second filmed elevator pitch describing the NHS problem they wish to fix and why.
