NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group intends to encourage all of its employees to make these sorts of contributions by giving them the advice and support they need to maximise the benefits from their 'good ideas'. This process is called innovation management and with appropriate good management of innovation, potentially valuable Intellectual Property (IP) canarise. It is intended that innovations and IP from any sector of the KCCG's activities should be appropriately exploited which can mean anything from dissemination throughout the KCCG, or the NHS, to commercial exploitationin order to access wider markets and other healthcare systems. Because of the potential for generating income, an Intellectual Property Policy is required to ensure rules are followed and legal obligations are met.
