WINNER: Roche Diagnostics and Oxford Academic Health Science Network: Changing clinical practice 

This partnership evolved measures to protect pregnant women at risk of developing pre-eclampsia.

It included, implementing an accurate diagnostic test; conducting a randomised trial; developing a toolkit to support clinicians, midwives, patients, pathology services; and building bespoke business cases with each hospital to fund the innovation.

Women free of PE were discharged within a week, directing resources to monitor patients in need. It reduced unnecessary hospitalisation and helped reallocate beds for better purposes.
