22 January 2016, IXICO plc (Ticker: IXI) (‘IXICO’ or the ‘Company’), the brain health company, is pleased to announce that it has been selected to participate in two of the NHS Innovation Test Beds, launched by NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

The Test Beds are seven new collaborations between the NHS and innovators which aim to harness technology to address some of the most complex issues facing patients and the health service.  Successful innovations will then be available for other parts of the country to adopt and adapt to the particular needs of their local populations.

IXICO has been selected to participate in and contribute its digital healthcare technology to two test beds : 

Care City Health and Care Test Bed – which will promote and support healthy ageing across a million strong population in North East London and 

Perfect Patient Pathway Test Bed – which aims to bring substantial benefits for patients in the Sheffield City Region suffering from long term conditions, such as diabetes, mental health problems, respiratory disease, hypertension and other chronic conditions.

Professor Derek Hill, Chief Executive of IXICO, commented: 

“We are delighted to be participating in the Test Bed initiative, which has the bold vision of making the NHS an excellent place to test and develop revolutionary new products. We are proud to be working alongside innovative partners who have a shared vison of using technology, knowledge and expertise to change the delivery of healthcare in the UK and deliver meaningful benefits to patients. ”

About NHS Testbeds
The core tenets of the vision for test beds are:

  • To enhance the nation’s health and wellbeing, by preventing disease and poor health in people  in the first case and restoring them to autonomous and fulfilling lives as quickly as possible when they do fall ill
  • To improve health and care services, resulting in better patient outcomes and experience of care, which can be evidenced
  • To improve integration between primary, secondary and social care
  • To identify ways of reducing health and social care costs at scale
  • To increase the NHS’ learning capability, accelerating its ability to conduct pragmatic yet robust trials initially in limited sites, and spreading those with the greatest benefits more widely
  • To lay the foundations for boosting economic growth, aiming to lead the world in the development and implementation of digital care systems, innovative care pathways and precision medicine.
  • To pioneer new models of reimbursement on the basis of proven effectiveness of reducing disease costs.
