Programme launched to bring Israeli digital health to NHS

A programme has been launched to help bring digital health from Israel into the UK and the NHS.

The British embassy in Israel announced a two-year programme that aims to incorporate Israeli technology into British industry.

The UK Israel Dangoor Health initiative was put together by the UK Israel Tech Hub, IBM’s Alpha Zone accelerator and DigitalHealth.London.

The initiative takes place within IBM’s accelerator programme where each semester two to three digital health companies will be chosen by IBM and DigitalHealth.London to participate. The companies will gain tech support from IBM as well as mentorship and guidance on NHS operations and market penetration.

British businessman David Dangoor, sponsor of the initiative, said: “With all this new computer power and greater understanding and the breakthrough in genetics, we are absolutely at the threshold of a healthcare revolution.”
