Yorkshire Post - Business - - BUSINESS / NEWS -

Dig­i­tal health in­no­va­tors across the re­gion are be­ing in­vited to ac­cess a pi­o­neer­ing new sup­port pro­gramme.

Dig­i­tal health ac­cel­er­a­tor pro­gramme Pro­[email protected] has been set up by York­shire & Hum­ber Aca­demic Health Science Net­work (AHSN). It pro­vides in­no­va­tive or­gan­i­sa­tions de­vel­op­ing dig­i­tal health so­lu­tions with ac­cess to a struc­tured course of sup­port and ad­vice to help them grow.

The pro­gramme is open to all SMEs that can demon­strate in­no­va­tive dig­i­tal and pa­tient so­lu­tions and have ei­ther an ex­ist­ing pres­ence in the re­gion or are will­ing to es­tab­lish one.

Neville Young, di­rec­tor of en­ter­prise and in­no­va­tion for the York­shire & Hum­ber AHSN, said: “Dig­i­tal health tech­nol­ogy is an ex­tremely im­por­tant busi­ness sec­tor, but SMEs of­ten face a num­ber of chal­lenges and bar­ri­ers that re­strict their growth.

“This is a great op­por­tu­nity for in­no­va­tive com­pa­nies to ac­cess a raft of sup­port specif­i­cally tai­lored to their needs, and equip them with the knowl­edge and con­tacts to drive their busi­nesses for­ward.”

Ap­pli­ca­tions for Pro­[email protected] will open on Jan­uary 14 and close on Fe­bru­ary 28.
