The Culture of Innovation: Embracing Change in Health and Care

Introduction

Healthcare has always been driven by innovation, by clinical and scientific discovery and the ambition always to do more to preserve and enhance life. As the pace of technological advance accelerates and data proliferates, the potential for the digital revolution to transform health and care is real, and immediate. Harnessing that potential, and aligning it with both appetite for innovation and the creation of collaborative healthcare systems is the work ahead for leaders in the sector seeking to maximise these huge opportunities.

System change and the need for greater levels of integration and partnership across health economies has been a central theme in much of our recent work at Saxton Bampfylde. Technology is at the heart of collaborative integration, both supporting different ways of working and enabling information to be shared in ways that become transformative. It promises considerable change, but also requires a significant shift in thinking across the sector, as well as a substantial investment in infrastructure, upskilling for colleagues, and changing approaches to leadership. It is driving cultural as well as operational change and, whilst there remains some scepticism, there is a vanguard across UK healthcare embracing digital technology as the future and carving new paths for their organisations, leaders, colleagues and patients as a result.
