Building the infrastructure for successful digital health start-ups
2020 might go down as the year digital health truly began to boom – but to continue thriving, health tech start-ups will need a strong support network and an environment that fosters innovation.
With advanced tech becoming ubiquitous, healthcare stakeholders finally embracing digital, and patients rapidly shifting their preferences, there has arguably never been a better time to be a digital health start-up.
Dr Kath Mackay, managing director of Bruntwood SciTech’s Alderley Park – the UK’s largest single-site life science campus – says there are many positive signs for the sector.
“There’s a lot of investment in life science and digital health. Private and public stakeholders are keen to fund these companies, and many firms are growing. People are embracing digital technologies like never before, and awareness has never been so high.”
