Chris makes an interesting point about looking to countries that are more challenged financially than the States and the UK to find examples of innovation that can support more efficient healthcare delivery. In Wessex organisations want to know what their local competitors are doing and are shaping their innovation programmes around this knowlege. Currently there is little evidence of them looking outside the UK.
