Adopting Innovation Wheel

Publication | 14 Jun 24

Through the Adopting Innovation programme, funded by The Health Foundation, we worked collaboratively to establish four health and care hubs across England hubs to identify, adapt and adopt innovations which make a difference to people’s lives.

“Of particular value has been the ability of Innovation Unit to take the learning from the experiences of all the Hubs (and from beyond this programme), synthesising it into high quality products that respond effectively to the needs and learning of the Hubs. E.g. ‘the wheel’ is a practical tool with wide application” Local Hub Sponsor

As part of this work, we developed a framework to help Hubs make sense of the breadth of the ambitious task. This ‘adopting innovation wheel’ became a vital tool that Hubs revisited many times during the programme and used with their partners to reflect on progress, share learning and ideas, and re-vitalise plans and priorities.

We welcome teams, organisations and integrated systems to use this wheel to consider their own culture and capabilities for adopting innovations and to identify priorities for development and action.
