Health and social care innovation, research and collaboration in response to Covid-19

Health and social care innovation, research and collaboration in response to Covid-19

The Covid-19 pandemic has been a catalyst that sparked new partnerships, accelerated research, and increased the speed at which innovations were adopted across the health and social care system.

Frontier Economics, alongside Kaleidoscope Health and Care and RAND Europe, were commissioned by The Accelerated Access Collaborative (AAC) and the Beneficial Changes Network (BCN) to conduct an independent review to help learn lessons from this period and recommend how potentially beneficial changes can become day to day practice.

The review focuses on the impact of the response to the Covid-19 pandemic in relation to innovation (particularly around service delivery), research (particularly clinical research) and collaboration. It was conducted between October and December 2020, and involved a range of lived experience voices and over 80 stakeholder organisations.

Frontier’s Kat Deyes worked closely with our valued project partners from Kaleidoscope Health and Care and RAND Europe.
