March has been a time of challenge and uncertainty for many of us. The COVID-19 crisis has shown us that digital innovation in healthcare is more important than ever in order to support the NHS, it’s patients and the hardworking staff on the frontline.
People all over the world are currently engaging with technology and specifically digital health products and services on a scale never seen before. Communication is essential during this period and DigitalHealth.London will continue to provide you with the latest updates and opportunities through these newsletters and through our Twitter. If you haven’t already, be sure to follow us on Twitter
to stay informed.
In other news, earlier this month we partnered with the Health Innovation Network (HIN) to run the Digital Revolution in Social Care Innovation Exchange. The event showcased local projects that are revolutionising health and social care, and introduced 10 digital innovations that address the pressures on adult social care. Check out HIN Programme Director Lesley’s blog
for a summary of the day and information about all the innovations.
We are pleased to announce that the DigitalHealth.London Launchpad is opening for applications. The programme will help a select number of digital health innovators develop and launch new innovative digital health solutions targeting the NHS. Applications are open until 19 April 2020 23:59 – you can find out more and complete the application on our website
This month we also say goodbye to our Programme Director Yinka Makinde who has been with the team since 2016. Yinka has shared a final blog
reflecting on her time at DigitalHealth.London and the upcoming challenges for the digital health innovation sector. A reminder that if you want to get in touch with the team please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
