NHS launches digital health tech accelerator in London
DigitalHealth.London Accelerator, is a program to encourage digital health companies to engage with the NHS in order to develop and refine products and services that can better meet the needs of the national health system. The expectation is not only that the program provides useful technologies to the NHS, but that it helps London to become a global hub for digital health technology innovation.
MedCity, a collaboration between the Mayor of London and the city' three Academic Health Science Centres: Imperial College Academic Health Science Centre, King's Health Partners and UCL Partners, is part of a partnership running the accelerator that also includes the London's Academic Health Science Networks, Guys and St Thomas' Charity, CW + the Charity for Chelsea and Westminster NHS Foundation Trust, Digital Catapult and Silicon Valley Bank. The effort is supported by an undisclosed amount of funding from the European Regional Development Fund.
