    Patient safety not built into the innovation process Most digital healthcare-related startup founders are understandably focused on developing their business ideas, finding and establishing their new markets, and commercialising their offerings. Inevitably, they often do not have specialist clinical safety advice available to them at an early stage, and do not necessarily consider the patient safety implications of their new solutions. Once the offering is ready to come to market is has to pass a range of compliance and other hurdles (more on those later), which, for many founders, ma

    The current position The review conducted extensive interviews during its data gathering phase and identified 6 areas where the current situation could be improved. Transformation model: the NHS is organised to focus on disease areas or settings of care, rather than the health and care journeys of citizens. Greater focus at the centre on the needs and experience of diverse users, including addressing inequalities, would facilitate transformation. Transformation is split across multiple different teams and is often overshadowed by requirements of the day-to-day. Many senior leaders

    The study examined the work of 61 GPs working in the NHS using time-motion methods, ethnographic observations and interviews. It found that GPs’ work is frequently disrupted by operational failures including: missing patient information problems with technology interruptions to consultations. The study identifies the nature and impact of operational failures that GPs face, allowing for more specific improvement measures to be explored. It also indicates the need for coordinated action to support GPs.

    Digital tools are a way to empower people and transform the way they receive and engage with health care services. In this way, digital tools contribute to the NHS long term plan commitment to a more concerted and systematic approach to reducing health inequalities and addressing unwarranted variation in care. 'Disruptive innovation' refers to technologies which address an unmet clinical need for the NHS, or which significantly improve current treatment options, and which are likely to be disruptive to current service delivery or lead to a step change in established care pathways in the UK.

    What is closed-loop insulin delivery? ‘Closed-loop’ insulin delivery, also known as an artificial pancreas system (APS), is a self-regulating system for administering insulin to patients with type 1 diabetes. An insulin pump is connected to a continuous glucose monitor (CGM) via a smartphone app or minicomputer - in some systems, this is built into the insulin pump. The app or pump uses an algorithm to respond to blood glucose data from the CGM, automatically adjusting insulin delivery from the pump. The CGM then picks up resulting changes in blood glucose levels and relays this infor

    In her report, the coroner highlights two matters of concern in this case: Initial delay in seeing a doctor Mr Collinson was not seen by a Doctor until eight hours after he arrived at hospital. The reason given for this was that the department was highly pressured on this date, and although a junior doctor had assigned the case to them by "clicking", that doctor had not in fact been able to see Mr Collinson. He did not "unclick" the patient and therefore other doctors who may have had capacity were not aware that Mr Collinson had not been seen. The coroner expressed concerns that
