Joining the DigitalHealth.London 2020 Accelerator.
DigitialHealth.London is a collaborative programme delivered by MedCity, and London’s three Academic Health Science Networks – UCL Partners, Imperial College Health Partners and the Health Innovation Network. They aim to bridge the skills gap within the health industry by building knowledge, insight and capability for heath and care providers and commissioners.
Our Co-Founder and COO, Adam Bacon, discussed what being selected for the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme means to Feebris:
"We are thrilled that Feebris has been selected for Digital Health London’s Accelerator 2020/21 programme. The prestigious programme backs digital solutions or services that have the highest potential to meet London’s NHS and social care challenges.
The programme has quickly established itself as a key player in supporting the NHS and social care to make the most of the opportunities digital healthtech offers. It has supported some of the most effective digital innovations now being used by the NHS. Crucially, it is estimated that for every £1 spent on the Accelerator programme, £14.50 is saved from the NHS.
Our AI and our machine learning technology means that anyone, in any environment can be easily trained to use remote monitoring devices to detect health deterioration. Not only does this support clinical decision-making allowing for more accurate triage and earlier intervention, it also enables a greater level of care in the community, which reduces the burden on our stretched healthcare systems.
The need for digital health has never been more critical than during COVID19, with lockdown and distancing measures in place and healthcare capacity even more overwhelmed. Furthermore, digital health will also play a crucial role in our country’s recovery in the months and years ahead.
During the pandemic we’ve supported 20 care homes and GPs to provide community triage and remote monitoring for elderly residents, which has ensured that they can receive the care they need more quickly, whilst remaining in a safe environment.
Many of the digital products currently providing vital support for the NHS’ COVID-19 response have come through the Accelerator programme and while the selection process is notoriously rigorous, this year’s was the most competitive since the programme’s inception.
We’re incredibly proud to be accepted onto the 2020/21 cohort of the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator and look forward to working with the team to ensure that Feebris continues to play a critical role in supporting NHS services to build new models of care that improve patient outcomes, whilst protecting the health and lives of vulnerable people."
