Our vision is to give everybody a voice in their healthcare, for the benefit of patients and the health of society.

We do this by providing the tools (Clinical Outcome Assessments, or health questionnaires) through which patients can voice their view of their symptoms and effects of treatment on them, or their quality of life. A Clinical Outcome Assessment (as defined by the U.S. FDA) is a measure that describes or reflects how a patient feels, functions, or survives.

InSpired Health Outcomes has been created by Dr David Churchman, based on his extensive career at Oxford University Innovation where he founded and ran a highly successful enterprise dedicated to Clinical Outcomes Assessments.

David’s aspiration is to support COA developers, wherever they may be undertaking research and development. So he has founded InSpired Health Outcomes, using his extensive experience and knowledge of supporting the development and application of COAs. 

He has gathered the expertise of renowned, highly regarded developers, including Professor Crispin Jenkinson. Professor Jenkinson is internationally renowned for creating exceptional, robust COA questionnaires which capture patients’ voices and can ultimately lead to a better experience and treatment path for patients with a wide range of conditions. 

Oxford is synonymous with excellence, and so at InSpired Health Outcomes we are building on this heritage to design, develop, manage and support the use of Clinical Outcomes Assessments which capture patients’ voices, so enabling them to have a say in their healthcare. Oxford excellence is in the DNA of everything we do here at InSpired Health Outcomes.

David Churchman, Crispin Jenkinson and David Morley are all Fellows of Harris Manchester College, Oxford.
