Are you a researcher interested in, or already working with, digital health tools? Are you interested in forming new collaborations to carry out research into these tools and interventions?

We’d love to invite you to this event exploring new opportunities to generate evidence around digital health, and highlighting examples of where this type of ground-breaking work is already underway.

With an increasing number of digital health innovations available to patients and healthcare staff, evidence generation is becoming ever more important for digital health companies. NICE has recently published its first Evidence Standards Framework for Digital Health Technologies, and with this, even more work is happening in this space. To work with the NHS, digital health innovators must ensure they are meeting minimum evidence standards, and academics are increasingly working to better define the methodologies used to evaluate these innovations and their impact.

The event will bring together digital health companies and academics / researchers with an interest in digital health evidence generation and showcase some of the examples of work already being done through the DigitalHealth.London “Evidence Generator.” We want to encourage the formation of new research collaborations to generate the evidence needed for the NHS to consider adopting a digital health tool.

We will facilitate discussions around the barriers companies face in generating evidence, and take a look into the future, asking: “What will the methodologies look like when it comes to evaluating digital health innovations?”

We want attendees to leave feeling inspired and empowered to form new research relationships with digital health companies.

About the DigitalHealth.London Evidence Generator

The project was set up in 2018 to help create new research collaborations for evidence generation between SMEs and academics and is still in the early stages of development. This event is an opportunity to review progress and support the creation of new research collaborations.
