The Agency for Clinical Innovation (ACI) leads innovation in clinical care across NSW. They do this by bringing clinicians, patients and healthcare managers together to support innovation, design and implementation.
39 networks, institutes and taskforces work closely with senior clinicians to deliver new models of care, clinical guides, resources and tools that support the delivery of improved healthcare. Their teams partner with local hospital teams to pilot and scale programs addressing system priorities including intensive care unit access block, implementing the patient-reported measures program across the state, and supporting Leading Better Value Care initiatives.
The ACI brings together senior clinicians who have a keen interest and track record in innovative clinical care. They collaborate with managers and patients to inform healthcare decisions, and to guide and galvanise action focused on:
- implementing evidence emerging from biomedical and organisational research
- adopting emerging innovations developed in other jurisdictions and settings
- testing new ideas and generating new knowledge about clinical practice and the delivery of care
