Hannah Harniess, interim Programme Director at Digital Health London
Final chance to apply for Digital Health London Accelerator programme
Deadline for the third year of acclaimed Accelerator is on 13 April
Digital Health London is looking for up to 25 innovative small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) who are developing solutions to some of the NHS’ most pressing challenges.
When SMEs with fantastic products can’t access the NHS, it’s patients that miss out. We’ve seen time and time again that digital technologies can make a major difference and help the NHS save resource – whether it’s slashing waiting times in A&E or helping people to manage long term conditions and live healthier lives, London is a vibrant hub of innovation.
We want to help thousands of Londoners benefit from latest technologies to improve their health; and supporting high potential companies to grow faster is vital to this mission. We can help you with business and product development, introductions and opportunities to showcase your innovation to senior NHS decision makers and influencers, and access to business, clinical, and topical specialists to help give you the best chance of success in the NHS.
We have so far worked with 61 companies and provided 600 hours of support, helped secure 27 research collaborations, and supported companies to launch 25 new products. Additionally, alumni have secured more than £15M in funding, and 50 NHS contracts.
Don’t just take it from us – Elliott Engers, CEO of Infinity Health, one of the companies on this year’s programme told us that, “As a direct result of the programme we have had the opportunity to meet with senior NHS stakeholders in London. Additionally, we have had the privilege of working with the most experienced health economists and researchers in the country, allowing us to better understand the impact Infinity has on clinical practice and the research methodology necessary to develop a robust evidence-base for our core product.”
We can’t wait to see the innovations London’s thriving companies put forward this year – so if you think your company fits the bill, why not apply today?
Successful SMEs will receive:
- One-to-one support from a designated “NHS Navigator”
- Specialist training
- Support with product development
- Opportunities to meet experts from business, clinical, and government backgrounds
- Regular opportunities to showcase their products with NHS decision-makers and influencers.
