We were delighted to welcome Dr Mark Jenkins, UK Managing & Medical Director from Accelerator company Oviva,  as a speaker at “Understanding demand and unmet needs” panel session at London Tech Week on 15 June titled “Addressing today’s healthcare demands: fit for patients; fit for investment”

Mark is a former doctor and management consultant. Mark shared specialist knowledge of meeting the need based on his recent work with the North West London Clinical Commissioning Group. Oviva is one of the piloted solutions for the type 2 diabetes digital treatment programme.

While running Oviva, Mark spotted the need for a more accessible, patient centred solution in type 2 diabetes and worked with local commissioners to help address the need for better and more effective delivery of behavioural change programmes through digital technology.

Hear what Mark said about his experience on the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme in this brief video recorded at London Tech Week.
