Health Hack provides a platform for innovators to work with industry experts to help develop their ideas for innovative solutions in medical technology, including devices, diagnostics, software and eHealth. Participants include clinical stakeholders, NHS experts, product developers, academics and business consultants. After an open call for innovations, several individual ideas are shortlisted. Each team or innovator then has the opportunity to shape their idea with the support of a team and to refine it ahead of presenting to a panel of judges. The winning idea is given the opportunity to present to MedTech Accelerator Investment Panel, with a chance of winning up to £125,000 of funding to develop the idea.
“It is always inspiring to see the range of ideas and the passion that the MedTech community brings to these events” commented Danny. “All of the ideas that were presented have the potential to make a real difference to patients, the NHS and business in the East of England.”
