Innovation Insight

Programme Brief

Who we are

The Innovation Insight function sits alongside Health Innovation Wessex’s delivery workstreams and provides an independent evaluation service. We have an extensive programme of work, with currently around 30 different evaluations underway, looking at digital solutions, new models of care, workforce, back office functions and more.

Skills and expertise

Our team work across a variety of disciplines and have particular expertise in the following areas;

  • Implementation science
  • Qualitative research
  • Quantitative analysis
  • Project and programme management

Several of our team have worked as change managers in commissioning, primary and secondary care – meaning we have a real understanding of the challenges you face.
