Digital technologies are empowering people across the breadth of society to track and manage their own health whilst enabling the healthcare industry to efficiently manage, access and analyse the data.

We attended BioEurope earlier this month to showcase London and the South East’s expertise in digital health, along with our colleagues at London & Partners, the Mayor's International Business Programme, and the Department for International Trade. The Conference in Cologne was attended by nearly 2,000 companies from 63 countries and was a great opportunity for us to liaise with and showcase the sector to global life sciences companies.

This joint campaign to promote the golden triangle of Cambridge, London and Oxford as a Digital Health Hub aims to encourage colleagues from across the globe to collaborate with industry and academia within our region and help drive forward health innovations. Discoveries are a product of collaborations, partnerships and wider team-work, often crossing international borders. It is essential for joining the design and supply of technology with the demands of transforming healthcare and delivering better outcomes for patients and the clinicians who care for them.

The UK government is leading the way, with digital health a strategic priority for the NHS. Cambridge, London, Oxford and the greater south east region of England lies at a point of unique convergence, with all the ingredients to be the world’s capital of digital healthcare. It is a world-renowned life sciences cluster, comprising of multiple award-winning research institutions, thousands of talented scientists, deep experience in clinical trials, and a thriving global business and life sciences community.

Find out more about our campaign and the digital health pioneers that are making their mark in healthcare through a combination of technology and science. Partnering with London & Partners, the Mayor’s International Business Programme and the Department for International Trade we have created a report showcasing the thriving digital health ecosystem of Cambridge, London and Oxford and a film featuring digital health innovators across the region.
