We are uniquely placed in Scotland’s digital health and care community. Our networks, reach and capabilities are able bring the right people together and provide them with the means to identify, design, evaluate and invest in new solutions to the country’s priority health and care challenges.
Scotland’s public sector, academia, charities and industry need a place to co-design digital solutions to some of our country’s biggest health and care challenges. We bring these groups together, allowing them to imagine and create new ways of working, services and products. Our unique needs-led approach is an essential link between the Scottish Government’s national priorities and the wealth of talent across different sectors and communities in Scotland.
This creates opportunities for innovators, entrepreneurs and enterprises to develop proven, scalable solutions that are commercially viable for use across Scotland and can be exported to other markets. That also helps Scotland to be at the forefront of the growing global digital health and care economy by developing the right workforce, infrastructure and policies to attract investment and new jobs.
Ultimately, our work with partners aims to reduce the pressures on health and care services while also improving the quality of life of Scotland’s people in both urban and rural communities.
The DHI's iterative project design process, and responsive approach to researcher lead proposals, combined with its legal know how, expertise in working with small businesses make it is a unique resource for academics who want to independently evaluate health innovations.
We have unrivalled insight into the academic, industry and practitioner capabilities across Scotland, through our track record of co designing new digital health and care innovations.
Our new priority is to create the demand for your capabilities. We are working with public and third sector leaders to understanding the key opportunities for research and innovation. Our future funding will be allocated tosupport these priorities, once agreed.
