The IPSNiP team completed and submitted their application to the test beds (phew!). NHS England, together with the UK Government and the Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) are running this flagship programme. The test bed programme provides the opportunity to combine different technologies with innovations in how services are delivered in the NHS. In the next phase, the AHSNs, with the support of the national bodies, will bring together leading innovators with potential test beds.

IPSNiP’s technology has application in the early identification of hospital associated infections and is undergoing pilot deployment in the US in targeted early intervention in cases of Sepsis. Models for detection of sepsis in the community are also a possibility.
