Supporting post-pandemic priorities
The NHS Insights Prioritisation Programme (NIPP) was set up to accelerate the evaluation and implementation of promising innovations – selected for their potential to support the evolution of post-pandemic ways of working, build service resilience and deliver ongoing benefits to patients.
Working together to generate insights for ICSs
Launched in 2021 by NHS England and the NHS Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC), the programme invited Heath Innovation Networks and Applied Research Collaborations (ARCs) to bid for a share of £4.2m investment to test and evaluate promising innovation within their Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).
Each of the Heath Innovation Network and ARC projects is now gathering momentum and will demonstrate impact on health inequalities, focusing on one of four priority areas:
- Remote consultation
- Remote monitoring
- New approaches to service delivery
- Health and social care workforce innovation
The programme began in November 2021 and will run to March 2023, with each project expected to deliver rapid insights by spring 2023.
The funded projects
The list of successful bids was announced in November 2021.
An independent evaluation was carried out between February and May 2023. This retrospective review captured learning from
the programme’s delivery and offered recommendations for post-NIPP activities and future innovation programmes within the NHS.
