During COVID-19 pandemic, health and care services innovated and adapted quickly to provide care and protect patients and staff in the context of a rapidly developing global pandemic. The unprecedented scale and pace of implementation of new pathways and service models, and a dramatic shift to digital and remote provision, resulted in a pressing need to understand whether major changes were indeed positive or potentially harmful. This session will explore what we can learn from COVID-19 about how rapid service evaluations can be prioritised and resourced to enable more efficient and effective scale-up of health and care innovations, whether in or outside of a pandemic.

This session forms part of the Innovation feature zone that is supported by The AHSN Network.
