SBRI is a programme that brings innovative solutions to
specific public sector needs, by engaging a broad range
of companies in competitions for ideas that result in shortterm development contracts
SBRI Process
•
Open competition based on Public Sector Challenges
•
Problem Owner defines the problem space for which solutions are either
absent or inadequate
•
Applications assessed by the Project Lead and most promising ones
awarded development contracts.
•
Project risk is managed through a Phased process
SBRI Features

•
Procurement Process
Operate under procurement rules rather than state aid rules
Development Contracts
100% funded R&D
Deliverable based rather than hours worked or costs incurred
IP rests with Company
Certain usage rights with Public Sector – companies encouraged to exploit
IP.

Currently 6 suppliers working on the ABMU SBRI Challenge
Projects to….
(i)
create a ‘clinical object library’ that describes patient’s interaction with health services
allowing unprecedented ease of access to understanding highly complex clinical
pathways, interventions and outcomes.
(ii)
develop clarity health, mapping technology that will enable the user to drill down to
various levels of detail within the maps. Processing SAIL data will provide each patient
with several risk profiles.
(iii)
apply predictive analytics to benefit the population of ABMU by producing interactive
visualisations to make better use of the population linked data for planning and
evaluation to improve health.
(iv)
create an innovative technology platform that combines the data contained within the
SAIL databank with other datasets to enable self-service of sophisticated analysis
through the use of Search Business Analytics.
(v)
develop flexible web-based tools allowing rapid exploration of the data held in the SAIL
databank allowing users to select, examine and compare cohorts of patients within the
data.
(vi)
provide an environment in which analysis of SAIL data can be undertaken; this
comprises: a data warehouse, a web portal, and an analytics platform.

BCUHB SBRI Challenge
Currently 5 suppliers working on the BCUHB SBRI Challenge
Projects to….
(i)
blend intelligent, safe software with smart hardware and environmental sensors to deliver a patient
focused ward system.
(ii)
develop a scalable, full spectrum solution from electronic data entry, through smart processing and
automated outputs, which can integrate with Clinical Systems at any level, in order to increase time
spent by nurses on patient care.
(iii) investigate the use of cybernetic interfaces that take the pain out of dealing with complex information
systems and let the machines do the heavy bureaucracy behind the scenes so the human teams can
focus on delivering health care.
(iv) developing an innovative digital solution to centralise data and make it securely available at Nurses'
fingertips, while also tracking equipment and bed allocation to improve ward efficiency and audit
verbosity.
(v)
develop a secure clinical data exchange platform to support Nurses at the bedside work more efficiently
with smart integrated technology.
