DigitalHealth.London Accelerator

There are just five days left to apply to the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator – the deadline for applications is Sunday 5th July 2020.

Digital products and services are providing vital innovation, support and capacity to the NHS response to COVID-19 and the health and social care challenges ahead.

The DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme is looking for the latest digital health SMEs that are ready to transform the NHS and social care in London.

Now in its fifth consecutive year, the NHS delivered programme, funded in part by the European Regional Development Fund, has supported some of the biggest and most effective digital innovations now being used by the NHS. The Accelerator has supported 105 digital health SMEs with 114 new pilots and contracts gained directly related to the support of the Accelerator. For every £1 spent on the programme it is estimated over £14 is saved for the NHS.

DigitalHealth.London’s Accelerator aims to speed up the adoption of technology in London’s NHS, relieving high pressure on services and empowering patients to manage their health. It works with up to 20 high potential SMEs over a 12-month period, giving bespoke support and advice, a programme of expert-led workshops and events and brokering meaningful connections between innovators and NHS organisations with specific challenges. The companies that are successful in getting onto the Accelerator programme are chosen through a rigorous and highly competitive selection process, involving expert NHS and industry panel assessments, interviews and due diligence checks. Companies that have a product or solution that is well-defined and are ready to start building their evidence base are likely to benefit the most from the type of support offered through the programme.

Through-out the 12 months the programme focuses on engagement with different elements of the health and care system. Company suitability is assessed based both on product maturity (meaning products that are ready to be trailed or bought that have high potential to meet NHS challenges) and on the company’s capacity to benefit from the programme (meaning companies have enough time and staff to engage).

Deadline for applications is midnight, Sunday 5 July 2020.
