The Digital Health Technology Catalyst is a new £35 million funding programme, funded through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund over the next four years.

The catalyst has been created to provide a sustainable pipeline of digital health products which will meet NHS needs and support the growth of UK companies. It was one of the recommendations from the Accelerated Access Review. As part of this, Innovate UK will invest up to £8 million in projects that develop new digital technology solutions to healthcare challenges.

Projects must focus on the development of digital health or digitally-enabled medical technologies. They must have the potential to achieve one or more of the following:

  • Improve patient outcomes
  • Transform healthcare delivery
  • Enable more efficient delivery of healthcare
