A new national Small Business Research Initiative (SBRI) Healthcare competition is being launched by NHS England in partnership with the Academic Health
Science Networks (AHSNs) to find innovative new products and services. The projects will be selected primarily on their potential value to the health service and on the improved outcomes
delivered for patients.
The competition is open to single companies or organisations from the private, public and third sectors who will ultimately be capable of supplying the NHS with the resulting product or service
on a commercial basis.
Bidders are invited to tender under the pre-commercial procurement (PCP) procedure for the provision of research and development services to seek solutions for a "Distributed European
Community Individual Patient Healthcare Electronic Record" (DECIPHER).
DECIPHER PCP Project, funded under the European Commision 7th Framework Programme for research and technological development (FP7),
challenges the industry to develop mobile solutions that enables secure cross-border access to existing patient healthcare portals and efficient and safe medical care of mobile patients in EU
member states. These solutions shall be of special interest in the management of patients with chronic diseases or unplanned care episodes.
‘GET Funded & International’ @ eHealth Forum was a focused and lively session, providing a unique opportunity for SMEs to present their investment and internationalisation plans to an
international panel of investors, purchasers and industry leaders. This stimulated a dynamic exchange of ideas and insights into what investors and purchasers are looking for.
SMEs benefitted from personalized feedback on their plans and heard about support available to access the US market through the SelectUSA program. The session also provided SMEs with unparalleled
networking opportunities to create contacts and secure links for follow-up after the session.
