Our projects

Find out about our work

We support projects at different stages of the innovation pathway to deliver meaningful change to health and care. These are some of the programmes of work and innovations we have supported.


Little Journey

Reducing anxiety in children through virtual reality

Measuring fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) concentration in asthma

FeNO testing is a method of diagnosing asthma by measuring fractional exhaled nitric oxide (FeNO) in the breath of patients. It aims to improve patient care and outcomes by more effective diagnosis of patients suspected of having asthma. Rollout supported nationally by the AHSN Network as part of the Rapid Uptake Product (RUP) programme.

Medic Bleep

Medic Bleep enables hospital and community staff to communicate and collaborate within and across organisations, sharing vital information about patients accurately and safely whilst also save time.
Health Innovation East supported the evaluation of both a pilot and wider roll out across West Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust.


MediShout provides a digital platform to integrate all logistical departments, giving clinicians an app to instantly report any issue and track the progress to resolution, while using artificial intelligence (AI) to predict future problems.


MySpira is an app that uses augmented reality and gameplay to help children between the ages of 6–13 years learn about asthma and proper inhaler technique, to reduce the number of children admitted to hospitals for incorrect use of inhalers.

Opioid deprescribing toolkit

The Health Innovation East is working in partnership with the ARC and Norfolk and Waveney CCG to improve the quality of life of people living with chronic pain and reducing the harm caused by opioids and other dependence forming medication.
We are working with senior NHS staff and patients to pilot a toolkit for clinicians to aid the deprescribing of opioids in the region.

Placental growth factor (PlGF) based testing

PlGF-based testing can help with clinical risk stratification for women with suspected pre-eclampsia, meaning they can be treated appropriately according to their need, improving both patient experience and outcomes.

The National Patient Safety Improvement Programmes (NatPatSIPs)

The National Patient Safety Improvement Programmes (NatPatSIPs) support a culture of safety, continuous learning and sustainable improvement across the healthcare system.

The Mental Health Safety Improvement Programme (MH-SIP)

This programme aims to improve the safety by reducing harm caused to people using mental health, learning disabilities and autism inpatient services by 2023.

The MedTech Funding Mandate (MTFM)

The MedTech Funding Mandate (MTFM) is an NHS Long Term Plan commitment to give patients access to selected NICE approved, cost-efficient technologies more quickly. We are working with suppliers to support trusts to implement the selected innovations, understand local and regional issues and share learnings from NHS organisations who have already implemented them.
