Awarded for an innovative approach that has had a positive impact on outcomes or stakeholder interactions 

Key requirements: 

  • Showcase how you have used an innovative approach to positively impact outcomes – your chance to show the benefits of your new and different thinking! 
  • We include innovation in the broadest sense; for example - a new research methodology or interviewing technique, a new analytical solution, or a different way of delivering the insights – as long as it has positively enhanced a project or an interaction with internal or external stakeholders. At least some of the impact must have been in the UK 

Answering the following questions should help bring your submission to life: 

  • Relevant context around the business challenge 
  • An outline of your new / different approach and how it added value beyond what would have been achieved with a traditional approach
  • A summary of the impact of your approach on the business, patients and/or the NHS, to include client reactions/feedback
