DHI helps address modern health and care challenges through the development of new ideas for cutting-edge digital health technology and information services. They find smarter, more effective ways of managing and delivering health and care services and the advances in technology present huge opportunities to build more effective, fit-for-purpose, patient-centred health and care services.
DHI partners and members have created a community of like-minded people, who contribute insight, know-how, funding and research to help turn the spark of an idea into something that can make a real impact in how health and social care is delivered. Crucially, DHI’s ideas must lead to viable and affordable products and services that can be brought to market in Scotland and beyond, establishing Scotland as an exporter of digital health and care technologies.
DHI brings together people and organisations in the health and social care, charity, technology, design and academic sectors to develop new ideas for digital technology and information services that will improve the delivery of health and care services for Scotland’s communities. If you have a great idea for a digital health or care innovation and would like DHI’s support to develop it, they will assess your idea to ensure it provides business, academic and civic value and if successful, you’ll begin developing your idea at one of three stages:
Scotland provides a rich platform for academic excellence, with nineteen Universities, some of whom lead the way in informatics, life sciences and medicine. This is built upon by progressive Health & Care services, willing and able interact with other sectors in pursuit of innovation. DHI harnesses these capabilities, delivering value for academic, business and civic partners through their dynamic innovation model.
