The increasing digitalisation of the health and wellbeing sector is transforming the way healthcare services are delivered and received. Organisations that embrace digitalization are better positioned to compete in today’s rapidly evolving healthcare landscape and are more likely to achieve long-term success.  HealthHub Finland and Location Innovation Hub, two European Digital Innovation Hubs from Finland support companies and public sector to achieve their goals.

Recently, the European Union established the European Digital Innovation Hub (EDIH) network to help SMEs and public sector organisations across the EU meet the challenges of digitalisation and strengthen their competitiveness.

The EDIH network is made up of more than 200 centres of excellence. They help businesses and public sector organisations to improve their business and production processes, products or services using digital technologies. The centres offer subsidised or free test-before-invest and innovation services, funding advice, training and skills development.
