Innovate UK

You may not realise it but Innovate UK is investing up to £35 million through the Digital Health Technology Catalyst.  In short, this is investment in projects developing new digital technology solutions to healthcare challenges.  Furthermore, the Digital Health Technology Catalyst is a 4-year programme.  Although round 1 recently closed, planning for round 2 is now in progress.

In short, the first competition sought ideas with the potential to achieve one or more of the following:
• improve patient outcomes
• transform healthcare delivery
• enable more efficient delivery of healthcare

While these objectives are core to the programme, your views on potential changes/additions will be of great value.  Moreover, we hope to cover such feedback during the event.
