NHSX has launched a new award to help NHS organisations in England bid for funding to accelerate the adoption of digital health technologies to support patients with long-term conditions.
The new Digital Health Partnership Award focuses on digital products and services that support people to remotely monitor their health at home or in the community.
The award, which opened on 1 July 2021, enables NHS organisations to bid for funding to accelerate ready to scale digital health technologies.
Changes triggered by the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic highlighted how digital solutions can be used to make services more accessible, make it easier for people to self-manage their health conditions and help people connect and collaborate across organisational barriers.
This award aims to help NHS organisations overcome financial barriers and enable them to adopt impactful digital health technologies to make a real difference to patients.
Application bids need to identify how organisations will deliver the opportunity at pace, with clear and sustainable outcomes and how each industry partner involved adds value to the bid.
Submissions from NHS organisations need to be returned to NHSX before 31 July 2021.
A second phase of the award is planned for late 2021.
Rhod Joyce, Deputy Director of Innovation, NHSX said: “The partnerships award will support the adoption and scaling of digital health technology to help NHS organisation support more patients to remotely monitor their health at home or in the community.”
