Commercial support

We work with our SME, corporate and third sector partners to commercialise innovation in the digital health and care sector both domestically and internationally.

The business of innovation

We can provide support to our partners throughout the innovation process from initial concept development through to product adoption and integration across appropriate health and care settings. This support will be specifically tailored to your project or commercial opportunity.

What we do

Our commercial support services help innovative ideas or new products or services arch achieve traction in the sector delivering vital health and care outcomes, and include:

  • Market research
  • Health and care sector advice
  • Networking
  • Project development and realisation

We are not only interested in assisting in the development of export opportunities for our local and national partners; but also to assist in creating opportunities for our international partners both locally and across a range of connected markets.

Health and care sector advice

Bringing your innovation idea to life can take careful preparation and research.

We offer expert advice, ensuring that you get the very highest standards of strategy review, market strategy development, advice on funding opportunities, an understanding of health economics and areas for application of ideas or products.

 

Market research

We can support your market research through focus group selection and management, user interviews, idea assessment and competitor analysis.

The target market for your product or service can often be a very difficult reach. We have great connections in the health and care industry and utilise these to help identify market channels and product opportunities.

Networking

It is vital to get your product or service known in the industry, and we can help you network with the right people.

As an effective low-cost marketing method for developing sales opportunities and contacts, our specialist knowledge of the sector can help you with introductions within sector, key partner meetings, executive introductions as well as opening the door to international opportunities.

Project development and realisation

As a key phase in a project, we can support you to make sure everything that will be needed to implement the project is in place. We can help you with idea development, partner selection and introduction as well as direct you to appropriate funding opportunities and provide guidance on your realisation strategy. This enables your product to achieve implementation at a national or global scale. 

Supporting commercialisation

We bring together people and organisations in the health and social care, charity, technology, design and academic sectors to develop new digital health innovations. Our commercial support services help innovative ideas become real products projects that are commercially viable and deliver significant health and wellbeing improvement. The DHI is not only interested in assisting in the development of export opportunities for our local partners; but also to assist in creating opportunities for our international partners both locally and across a range of connected markets.
