Applications open for Cohort Two of the DigitalHealth.London Evidence Generator Bootcamp

Today, DigitalHealth.London has opened applications for the second cohort of their Evidence Generator Bootcamp, designed for digital health companies that are about to or have launched their product into the NHS and are committed to driving their evidence generation forward. The programme involves expert support from the NHS, academia and industry, advisory sessions and workshops, peer networking and honest brokering to foster research collaborations.

As outlined in NHS England and NICE policy, digital health companies need more than a great product to succeed — they need quality evidence. While evidence generation can be confusing and challenging, it doesn’t have to be.

DigitalHealth.London is at the forefront of evidence generation with more than eight years of experience, key expertise and extensive networks. Since 2016, their award-winning programmes have supported over 232 digital health innovators and small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) at the forefront of transforming health and care. On average, each £1 of public investment spent generates £10.90 in economic benefit for their flagship Accelerator programme.

The DigitalHealth.London Evidence Generator Bootcamp programme is part of the Digital Health.London Business Support for London Project which has received £1,379,257.04 from the UK government through the UK Shared Prosperity Fund.

Having effective and relevant evidence is the key to success for digital health products within the NHS. Our Evidence Generator Bootcamp is a unique opportunity for innovators to identify and generate evidence in order to enable the value of their digital innovations to be understood, reducing barriers to adoption.

Programme Director of DigitalHealth.London

Having had the privilege of working with various innovators, disruptors, SMEs and engaging in numerous evidence generation projects, I know first-hand how critical evidence generation is for start-ups to succeed – from securing funding to achieving market penetration. The Evidence Generator Bootcamp from DigitalHealth.London represents an invaluable opportunity for SMEs and researchers in the digital health and care sector. Without solid evidence, even the most innovative technologies may struggle to gain acceptance and scalability.

The first cohort of the DigitalHealth.London Evidence Generator Bootcamp gave the programme an ‘Excellent’ score, with 100% of the companies willing to repeat the programme. Participants have described the programme as “fantastic”, “making evidence generation much more simple” and giving “clarity, structure and support to generate evidence”.

Following the application process, up to 15 SMEs that have products or services with high potential to meet NHS and social care challenges and who have identified evidence generation as a priority focus will be offered a place on the programme. There is no cost charged to SMEs, but places are subject to UK Subsidy Control rules and have a Minimal Financial Assistance (MFA) value of £3,500.00.

Applications open on Tuesday 5 March 2024 and close at midnight on Sunday 17 March 2024.
