Bevan Innovators Exemplar Evaluation published
10th Jul 2017
The Bevan Commission is pleased to announce the publication its evaluation of the Bevan Innovators Exemplar Programme and its first cohort.
Alongside the Bevan Academy, the Bevan Commission launched its inaugural Pan-Wales Bevan Commission Exemplar programme in December 2015, culminating in a series of posters by each group. The programme aimed to demonstrate the power of applying a prudent approach to healthcare in Wales, as promoted by the Bevan Commission.
Professor Nick Rich, Professor of Socio-Technical Systems Design at Swansea University, said:
“Overall the programme should be regarded as a success and at multiple levels. The Bevan Commission and Bevan Academy brands are well respected in the Welsh health service and command respect from clinical staff in the form of greater clinical engagement with technological and process innovations. The endorsement of the Bevan Academy brand allowed Exemplars to access Board level decision-makers and to influence ‘practice’ with much greater ease than previous programmes that have attempted to improve technological and process changes. The programme proves that knowledge transfer between healthcare, commercial and academic organisations works effectively when organisations collaborate.”
