In his first monthly column for Pf Media, David Reilly (Managing Director of Let’s Learn Digital) looks at the new generation of start-ups – including FibriCheck – and examines what we can learn from emerging technologies that look set to shape the future.
Reilly first zooms in on Digital Health London’s Accelerator programme, which aims to accelerate the adoption of much needed technology into London’s NHS. Through its vast NHS connections, the purpose is to expertly facilitate a new realm of battle hardened start-ups, resolved to solve some of the most significant challenges that emerged from the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Accelerator programme is an investment that has already paid off. In April 2020, an interim evaluation of the Digital Health Accelerator found that for every £1 spent on the digital accelerator programme, £14.50 was saved.
Reilly goes on to examine some of the start-ups accepted to this programme – including FibriCheck – and explores our contribution to the emerging technology landscape and how we’re deploying to meet the future requirements of health and pharma.
