This year’s DigitalHealth.London Accelerator Programme selection process was the most competitive it has ever been, with an increase in the number and the average score of all applications received for the programme. With 1 in 14 applications being accepted on the programme, this is a true testament to the ongoing commitment and hard work of the team at Phlo and our vision for the future of pharmacy. We are excited to be part of cohort 5 in the 2020/2021 Accelerator programme, working alongside some other fantastic digital health companies in the UK.
The Accelerator programme is now in its fifth year and it’s been designed to help speed up the adoption of technology across the NHS and relieve pressure on healthcare services. The companies that have been selected to take part this year are considered to have the highest potential in transforming London’s NHS and social care services.
Many of the latest digital healthcare innovations surrounding COVID-19 has come through companies providing products and services through the Digitalhealth.London Accelerator and we hope to be able to add to the fantastic progress that has already been made.
“We are delighted to announce today the 20 digital health SMEs on our fifth DigitalHealth.London Accelerator cohort. After what was the most competitive selection process yet, it is clear that digital health in London is rapidly growing and supporting patients and our NHS and social care services.
“This year has been a defining moment for digital health as it has been at the forefront of the COVID-19 response and will continue to be part of our country’s recovery in the months and years ahead. These 20 SMEs are all ones to watch and we look forward to working with them and playing our part in supporting the NHS and social care through digital transformation.”
The team at Phlo are excited to get started on a programme of expert-led workshop’s and events as well as forging some strong relationships with NHS organisations that are facing specific challenges, particularly when it comes to adapting to the future of pharmacy and patient medication needs.
We’re hopeful that we can follow in the footsteps of other DigitalHealth.London alumni including Babylon, Push Doctor, Livvi and Echo as we build the UK's first national on-demand Digital Pharmacy business.
