Our Strategy and Plans
Leading with delivery: Our strategy for 2021 to 2024
Health Innovation Manchester’s mission is to become a recognised international leader in accelerating innovation that transforms the health and wellbeing of our citizens.
We work with innovators to discover, develop and deploy new solutions, harnessing the transformative power of health and care, industry and academia working together to address major challenges and tackle inequalities.
Our focus and priorities for the next three years:
We have developed a framework against which we will align our delivery portfolio and resources:
- Accelerate innovation at pace and scale – close alignment of innovation to addressing Greater Manchester’s major health challenges, with a stronger affiliation to commissioning and service transformation to ensure maximal benefits are delivered.
- Data science, pathway analysis and transformation – continue to build on Greater Manchester’s excellence in recruitment to clinical trials and source opportunities to harness all of GM’s data assets to deliver real world evidence studies.
- Conduct traditional trials and real-world studies – Greater Manchester‘s strong digital and data assets are now globally important for analysing existing pathways and supporting pathway redesign to benefit citizens and the system.
- Place-based transformation – Support localities to harness the power of digital technology to transform and regenerate local communities by addressing the many factors affecting health, wealth and wellbeing.
In order to achieve these aims, we will need to work closely with partners from across Greater Manchester. Our success is intertwined with the success of our partners, so we work as one joined up system. This includes commissioners, providers, Universities, the NIHR Manchester Biomedical Research Centre, NIHR Applied Research Collaboration Greater Manchester (ARC-GM), CRN Greater Manchester, industry, national government bodies and investment agencies.
