SBRI Call – Improving Hip Fracture Outcomes Using Data, phase 1

This is a Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition funded by the Scottish Government through Health Innovation South East Scotland. The aim of the competition is to improve outcomes for hip fracture patients by developing a system using routinely collected health data and data-analytics techniques.

The system must optimise complex patient care pathways to deliver hip fracture care according to national care standards.

This is phase 1 of a potential 2-phase competition. A decision to proceed with phase 2 will depend on the outcomes from phase 1 and assessment of a separate application into a subsequent phase 2 competition. Only successful applicants from phase 1 will be able to apply to take part in phase 2.

Successful applicants will receive funding, as well as guidance from NHS Lothian, University of Edinburgh and access to the DataLoch repository of health data for South East Scotland.

Competition opens: Monday 1 February 2021

Competition closes: Wednesday 31 March 2021 11:00am (GMT)

In applying to this phase 1 competition you are entering into a competitive process.

Any adoption and implementation of a solution from this competition would be subject of a separate, possibly competitive, procurement exercise. This competition does not cover the purchase of any solution.

Phase 1 projects can have total costs of up to £15,000, inclusive of VAT.
