London is to become the global capital for digital health having established itself as an industry leader in Europe.
DigitalHealth.London was set up in response to the London Health Commission’s recommendation for the creation of a digital health hub; a marketplace where digital solutions could be brought and sold – one where industry wanted to come and do business, and where patients and the public would benefit.
The programme is a collaboration between the three London Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs);Imperial College Health Partners, UCLPartners and the Health Innovation Network, plus the Mayor of London and Academic Health Science Centres (AHSCs). It draws upon leading NHS experts with world-class insight to pioneer the development, commercialisation and adoption of digital technologies in health and social care to improve health outcomes.
