Health Innovation Network – Digital North Accelerator Programme

What is the Digital North Accelerator Programme?

The Digital North Accelerator programme is a collaborative enterprise established by the four northern Health Innovation networks. It aims to support regional digital health technology firms in the adoption and spread of their proven innovations within the healthcare system. Successful regional solutions are then guided towards national adoption through the Innovation Exchange programme.

The 2024 innovations supporting the cardiovascular disease programme will deliver game changing digital innovations that will help to address the growing problem of cardiovascular disease.

The Health Innovation Network and four Northern Networks

The Health Innovation Network incorporates 15 regional bodies which operate as the innovation arm of the NHS. Across the country the health innovation networks act as a bridge between health care providers, commissioners, academia and industry. By connecting these sectors, we provide a pipeline of solutions from research and product development through to implementation and commercialisation.

Of the 15 health innovation networks, there are four in the north: Health Innovation Yorkshire & Humber, Health Innovation Manchester, Health Innovation North West Coast and Health Innovation North East and North Cumbria. We aim to embed innovative products and services within routine clinical practice, stimulating regional economic growth whilst improving patient outcomes and transforming lives.

Four SMEs have been selected for the 2024 cohort:

  • Addvantage Technologies
  • PocDoc
  • Iplato
  • CheqUp
