Identifying the innovations of tomorrow
Healthcare innovation is not only about disruptive technological developments like artificial intelligence; big data; or digital tools. It also spans simple, effective, everyday ideas.

InnoScot Health welcomes fresh health and social care ideas. We receive over 100 ideas each year and have evaluated over 2,000 idea submissions since the organisation was set up.
Ideas are evaluated in the same way whether they are big or small, a product, service, or care pathway. We evaluate the commercial viability and potential to improve patient care and generate a revenue return.
“Putting forward your idea for consideration can be daunting, but it does not have to be that way. We welcome innovation from all levels of the NHS, and encourage ground-breaking thinkers to come forward."
