Successful healthcare innovations address an unmet clinical need. Those best placed to identify those needs and to ideate a solution are those working at the coalface: clinicians, nurses, physiotherapists, orderlies and the extended allied healthcare network – anyone who supports a patient. Ireland’s vibrant research community is also well placed to identify clinical needs for which research could provide a solution.
Innovation Out incorporates any pre-commercialisation concept, idea or innovation, emanating from anyone associated with healthcare delivery or from a relevant researcher, which addresses a valid healthcare need.
The Innovation Out activity of Health Innovation Hub Ireland aims to stimulate and capture these ideas, validate them and enable them to develop through the innovation development cycle.
Through the Innovation Out activity, Health Innovation Hub Ireland supports the development of new healthcare technologies that address a real clinical need and have the potential to impact jobs and the economy while delivering tangible impact on healthcare. Details of calls and roadshows will be available shortly.
