We work to drive improvement and innovation within the health and care sector by providing evidence-based services; measuring the impact on patients, staff, and the wider system.
Our work enables us to provide impartial answers to the questions which matter to staff, patients, and the health and care system.
Unity Insights was formed in 2021 following several years of continued growth as the analytics and evaluation function, KSS Insights, at Health Innovation Kent Surrey Sussex (HIKSS), previously known as Kent Surrey Sussex Academic Health Science Network (KSS AHSN). We operate as a partner organisation to Health Innovation KSS, maintaining strong relationships with both Health Innovation KSS and the wider Health Innovation Network. Our two organisations are continuing to work closely together to encourage the spread and adoption of suitable innovations.
We have extensive experience of working with the NHS, from supporting measurement capture of small-scale local programmes to providing analytics and evaluation for innovations rolled out nationwide. Our team has a clear understanding of the healthcare system, the way it is governed and commissioned, and the challenges it faces. This knowledge enables us to tailor our service options to each individual project, ensuring that meaningful insights are captured for the benefit of the system.
Having started with a focus on quality improvement programmes, our skills have grown to enable the delivery of a range of services that capture and forecast the impact and value that programmes derive.
Our goal is to ensure that our insights are meaningful and impactful; supporting decision making through promoting what works, and re-thinking what does not.
The team’s extensive skills and experience enable us to provide a range of services; from using analytics to transform data into effective visualisations, to conducting health economic modelling to articulate the forecasted benefits of a product or programme, which, combined with qualitative insights, provide a comprehensive evaluation. Techniques such as systems dynamics modelling provide further understanding of the potential impact that changes to service provision may have on the wider system.
Our advisory and commercialisation services highlight procurement routes within the NHS, drawing on requirements from regulatory bodies to provide real-world guidance. We have supported organisations across NHS, academia, and industry, at both national and international level.
