The Innovation Case Studies section provides a comprehensive list of exemplar innovation projects from across the NHS. These innovations have been carefully selected to represent a range of ideas from medical technologies through to service and pathway re design. Each case study provides a background to the innovation and a contact for further information.

'Activ8rlives' self care
|The NHS spends around £4.7 billion annually on treating lung disease. Hospital admissions are disruptive, particularly for older patients who can lose independence during a hospital stay.|
People with long-term respiratory diseases are susceptible to chest infections; each episode damages the lungs, resulting in prolonged treatment in hospital. A self-administered sputum test gives patients with long term respiratory disease early warning of chest infections, enabling home treatment and reducing hosital admissions.
SBRI funding supported the company (Aseptika) to extend its system, which tracks and analyses blood oxygen, heart rate, temperature, blood pressure, body mass and lung function.
The company was supported by Eastern and Wessex AHSNs as part of the SBRI programme and clinical trials.
