Elliott Engers, CEO at Infinity Health, said,“This award means so much to us. It recognises our commitment to understanding the challenges clinicians face and adapting our solution to meet their needs. The Somerset team have been fantastic to work with and they are seeing the benefit that digital task management provides clinicians and patients. We’re pleased that Infinity has increased their staff capacity, providing them with more time to support colleagues and improve patient care.
“The knowledge and networks we gained on the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator continue to help us grow in the NHS. We know how to be clear on our value, gather evidence, and connect with the right people. The NHS’ survival is dependent on digital innovation and the Accelerator is a great programme for founders to hone their solutions ready to drive transformation.”
Jacob Haddad, CEO and Co-Founder of Accurx, said, “We believe that healthcare runs on conversations, and when healthcare teams can communicate easily and reliably, they can deliver even better patient care. We’re now 190 people (and growing), we have 98% adoption in GP practices, users in 50% of trusts and we’ve launched multiple new features that are making patients healthier and healthcare staff happier, through seamless communication.
With this success, it’s always important to remember where we started. DigitalHealth.London’s Accelerator programme helped us by providing us with advice and industry connections to help us navigate the challenges and opportunities of growing a business and launching products in the unique environment of the NHS.”
The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator is a collaborative programme funded by London’s three Academic Health Science Networks – UCL Partners, Imperial College Health Partners, and the Health Innovation Network, MedCity, CW+ and receives match funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
