How ICST Can Help You
ICST supports NHS and government organisations to scope, design, develop, implement, measure, and augment the adoption of large-scale interventions. This is a collaborative approach to share common aims and outcomes, forming a close alignment between the Institute and its partners.
Depending on the scale and context to the problems or aspects of care and service provision that require improvement, we help plan product specifications to deliver the necessary results.

DIGITAL AND BLENDED LEARNING
DOCUMENTARIES, VIDEO TUTORIALS, TV SHOWS, AND MULTI-MEDIA COMMUNICATIONS
NATIONAL STANDARDS, REGISTERS, AND CERTIFICATION
PATIENT SUPPORT TOOLS AND APPS
IMPLEMENTATION SOFTWARE AND ADMINISTRATION
SERVICE MANAGEMENT AND SUPPORT
AUDITS, DATA COLLECTION, AND RESEARCH
Our implementation methodologies
It takes on average 17 years for evidence to be implemented into practice with only a 14% success rate. We call this the 'implementation gap'
Using Implementation methods underpinned by Implementation Science this gap can be reduced to 2-4 years with a success rate of 80%. At ICST we do this even better
