The Data Lab, funded by the Scottish Funding Council, and in collaboration with DHI Scotland and Stratified Medicine Scotland, will fund up to £325,000 (inc VAT) for innovative technology approaches to record and integrate cancer PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measures)/PREMs (Patient Reported Experience Measures) to improve patient care.
This is funding call using the Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI). The aim is to develop technology that will record PROMs (Patient Reported Outcome Measures)/PREMs (Patient Reported Experience Measures) and integrate them into existing NHS systems to improve patient care.
The competition is looking for proposals that integrate patient reported outcome and patient experience data into Scotland-wide health care processes to:
§ Improve experiences of treatment, care, and personal outcomes
§ Understand the clinical and psychosocial impact of new and established cancer treatment
§ Make better use of NHS resources by reducing waste and inefficient practices
§ Accelerate the adoption of new technologies into the NHS through efficient evaluation mechanisms
§ Create high value research infrastructure with global reach
Organisations can carry out the project on their own or with others.
This competition has 2 Phases. Up to £125,000 (inc VAT) is allocated for Phase 1, and up to £200,000 (inc VAT) for Phase 2:
§ Phase 1: technical feasibility. Projects should last up to 3 months. Projects can range in size up to a total cost of £25,000 (inc VAT) each.
§ Phase 2: development and evaluation. Projects should last up to 6 months. Projects can range in size up to a total cost of £100,000 (inc VAT) each.
