EQL, part of the Google Cloud for Startups Programme, has been chosen as one of 20 high potential start-ups to take part in the NHS DigitalHealth.London’s accelerator programme which will support it to develop and deploy solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing the NHS.
The programme aims to speed up the adoption of technology in London’s NHS, relieving high pressure on services and empowering patients to manage their health. The programme is uniquely positioned to provide in-depth knowledge of the NHS and wider UK health and care sector to high potential companies in London to help them refine, develop and scale their innovations. It focuses on engagement with clinicians and healthcare experts, working collaboratively to get to the root of health and care challenges and find solutions. It is also part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
Jason Ward, CEO and co-founder of EQL, said: “Being accepted onto this programme has been invaluable – we have had the opportunity to connect with NHS stakeholders, investors and health-tech innovators like ourselves. Our assigned ‘NHS Navigator’ has shared expertise and advice giving us the information to help us to go on to the next stage in our development.”
