Department of International Trade publishes First 100 UK Digital Health Companies Playbook

32 DigitalHealth.London Accelerator and Launchpad companies and alumni featured in The First UK Digital Health Companies Playbook, published by the Department of International Trade.

The ‘First 100 companies’ were selected after a rigorous process based on criteria including how committed they were to export and international expansion, the global uniqueness of their innovation, a track-record of working collaboratively with Healthcare UK, their responsiveness, and how well they represent the UK journey and direction in digital health, particularly with the NHS. The list will be reviewed and maintained regularly and released formally twice a year.

The aim of the report is to identify some of the best British talent in Digital Health and link it with worldwide opportunities.

32 DigitalHealth.London Accelerator and Launchpad companies and alumni feature on the list. The following companies have shared their response to the playbook:

Lorenzo Gordon, CEO of Maldaba, said, “Maldaba are delighted to be included in the First 100 by the Department for International Trade.  We see this as a real endorsement of our innovative work in digital health over many years, and are grateful for the opportunity to share our experience and to continue to help others on an international platform.” 

Elliott Engers, CEO of Infinity Health, said: “Being identified as one of the best healthtech firms in the UK is fantastic recognition of Infinity Health’s impact as a digital task management solution in a range of NHS settings. We are looking forward to bringing the benefits of our technology to health and care organisations overseas and are grateful to Healthcare UK for supporting us with this prestigious programme.”

David Ezra, Director at Vantage Health, said, “It’s an honour to be selected for the DIT’s digital health playbook, again with the support of DigitalHealth.London’s Accelerator. With the current medical state of play and looming backlog in care, digital health is fast becoming a vital solution to the overwhelming challenges facing healthcare. At Vantage, we’ve seen first-hand during the pandemic how quickly digital systems can be implemented (for one of our systems, this was a little as six weeks) and, crucially, how this swift implementation has helped patients to continue to receive the appropriate care throughout COVID-19.”

Dafydd Loughran, CEO of Concentric Health, said, “As a team we’re so delighted to see Concentric featured in this playbook, and to have the Department for International Trade’s support as we expand internationally during 2021. There is no doubt that this playbook highlights the amazing array of digital health innovations coming from the UK currently.”

Ben Walsh, Head of Marketing at Oxehealth, said, “The whole Oxehealth team are excited to have been featured in the Department for International Trade Digital 100 this week. It will help elevate our profile beyond our core markets of UK and Sweden, helping to make global healthcare providers aware of the potential benefits we can bring to clinicians and patients. Profile building and making meaningful connections with healthcare providers is something that the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator Programme has actively assisted us with since we became part of the programme at the end of 2020”.

Dr Tom Oakley, CEO of Feedback Medical Ltd, said, “Being selected for the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme has opened a network, both of potential Bleepa customers but also fellow innovators in the medical digital field. The work that the DIT and DigitalHealth.London are doing to promote entrepreneurial companies such as Feedback is so important to raising our profile and enabling routes into key markets, including the wider NHS audience, as well as international markets such as India where we are making great progress following a DIT mission. In combination these platforms are helping to showcase the best British technology to the NHS and the world, it is great to see Bleepa front and centre of these discussions. 

“The DIT Digital Health First 100 companies’ campaign highlights Bleepa’s role in transforming healthcare through digital innovation and potential as a key UK export. We not only appreciate their ongoing support of our business, but also recognise their validation of our product can speak volumes to leaders in healthcare.  We look forward to continuing to build on this collaborative work together to build a better, stronger and more intuitive approach to healthcare.”
