We are excited to announce the selection of the 12 participants for the first ever AWS Healthcare Accelerator in the UK, a four-week program that cultivates and promotes innovative startup solutions that achieve the quadruple aim of improved patient experience, improved clinician experience, better health outcomes, and lower cost of care.
The United Kingdom (UK) healthcare system’s acceleration of innovation in service delivery, along with its increased adoption of digitally-enabled, secure, and compliant solutions through the Covid-19 crisis has brought about great benefit for patients. Embracing digital health innovations has enabled the NHS to deliver a world-leading vaccination programme showing their inherent talent and collaborative, patient-centric capacity to transform at pace. Now, their focus moves to tackling backlogs in elective care, continuing to implement the NHS Long Term Plan, and focusing on transformation of services to support NHS resilience. To support both high-potential healthcare startups and the UK healthcare system’s demand for these types of solutions, we are excited to announce the launch of the AWS Healthcare Accelerator programme in the UK.
