Technology based innovative solutions to promote patient empowerment and sustainability in kidney care


The Department of Health and the  National Institute for Health Research and Devices for Dignity Healthcare Technology Co-operative (NIHR D4D HTC) are collaborating to launch a new Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) competition to find innovative technology based solutions in Kidney Care.

The focus of this competition will be on technologies that can make a difference to patients over the whole spectrum of kidney disease ranging from earlier diagnosis and prevention through to treatment of advanced stages of kidney failure. An important goal would be to promote patient empowerment and/or sustainable practices throughout the patient care pathway that are in line with national guidelines. 
Solutions could be applicable for use in the home, community or secondary care. Applications would be sought that are applicable to individuals, such as patients and their carers, and/or NHS services. 
The Department of Health is investing up to £3.6m in this competition, which is expected to run in two phases.
Competition documents will be available from Friday, 4 October 2013 at www.d4d.htc.nihr.ac.uk
