We are pleased to announce that SMEs can now register your interest in participating in the next intake of our flagship DigitalHealth.London Accelerator, which is scheduled to begin in summer 2019.
Signing up means you will be among the first to receive news, information, and announcements on the application process.
The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is part of a “family” of digital health accelerators operating out of London and AHSNs across the country. The accelerators have been set up to speed up the adoption of technology in local NHS organisations, relieving high pressure on services and empowering patients to manage their health.
The accelerators support high potential small and medium sized companies (SMEs) to develop and deploy solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the NHS, and help innovative digital health innovations to benefit patients faster. Each accelerator is designed to meet specific needs within their local health and care footprint. They harness economies of scale through shared events that support similar needs, shared learning on navigating the complex NHS landscape. They also share operations, with standards that ensure the best companies are connected with decision makers.
Each accelerator offers a range of support, resources, and opportunities for digital health SMEs, including: NHS navigation support, business planning, pitch practice, information-sharing and training, connections with NHS providers, and networking.
