Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) impact report 2016

Across England, there are 15 Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs). They were established by NHS England in 2013 to spread innovation at pace and scale in order to improve health and generate
economic growth.

As the only bodies that connect NHS and academic organisations, local authorities, the third sector and industry, they are catalysts that create the right conditions to facilitate change across whole health and social care economies, with a clear focus on improving outcomes for patients.

This means they are uniquely placed to identify and spread health innovation quickly and at serious levels, by driving the adoption and spread of innovative ideas and technologies across large populations.
