Theatre 2

15.30 - 17.30 DigitalHealth.London - Health Tech Session
DigitalHealth.London was set up in response to a recommendation from the London Health Commission, DigitalHealth.London launched in February 2016 with a key vision: to accelerate the adoption of digital innovation across health and care to improve patient and population outcomes and experience, and supporting a sustainable future NHS.

DigitalHealth.London is a collaboration between the three London Academic Health Science Networks (AHSNs) - Imperial College Health Partners, UCLPartners, and the Health Innovation Network - MedCity and NHS England, with strong support from the three London Academic Health Science Centres (AHSCs) and the Mayor of London.

Expertly partnering digital innovations with health and care needs, we are helping to realise system-wide efficiencies and improved health outcomes through problem articulation, transparency, matchmaking NHS needs with innovative solutions, and capability building.
