DigitalHealth.London has opened apps for its new bootcamp that helps digital health companies navigate the complexities of generating evidence.
The eight-week program is designed to help companies identify their evidence needs and gain expert assistance to help them generate effective and relevant evidence.
In order to successfully launch a digital health product to the NHS, it is essential that companies are able to obtain quality evidence demonstrating how their product is suited to the needs of the UK healthcare system and its patients. The Evidence Generation Bootcamp aims to address this challenge with a series of educational workshops, webinars, and pitch sessions.
Delivered remotely, the bootcamp will help companies decide their priorities and plan their evidence generation journey accordingly. The program will cost £7,500 and London-based small and medium-sized businesses can be eligible for fully-funded places, thanks to partial funding from the European Regional Development Fund, through the Greater London Authority and DigitalHealth partners. London.
Companies committed to advancing their generation of evidence will benefit from opportunities for peer support, hands-on exercises and collaborative relationships, as well as expert guidance.
Paul Wallace, Academic Lead of DigitalHealth.London Evidence Generation Bootcamp, said, “DigitalHealth.London is at the forefront of evidence generation with over five years of experience, key expertise and extensive networks. Generating evidence continues to be one of the biggest challenges facing digital health companies and so we are hosting this new standalone Evidence Gen Bootcamp to reduce the barriers that prevent companies from generating effective evidence.
The bootcamp is aimed at digital health companies planning to launch or already have a product in the UK market. It is open to UK and international businesses. Program applicants will be assessed on their commitment to the program, the potential benefits of the program for them and their potential to provide solutions to pressing NHS issues.
Ruth Bradbury, Acting Head of DigitalHealth.London, said: “Our Driving Digital report released last year highlighted the importance of determining how and what to assess in digital health to enable further adoption.
“We also know, through our Accelerator and Launchpad programs supporting companies on their evidence generation journey, that it can be difficult for them to know when to start.
“At DigitalHealth.London, we believe it is important for us to pivot in the same agile way as the companies we support, which is why we are launching the new Evidence Generation Bootcamp program, to offer our expert experience in generation of evidence to even more digital health companies working at the forefront of healthcare innovation.
DigitalHealth.London opened applications for its Launchpad program earlier this year – aimed at companies that are in the early stages of developing their product or service.
