NHS Market Access Accelerator 2021

 




TheHill is a leading digital health business support specialist and clinical network, based at Oxford University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, with a wealth of expertise in delivering regional and national programmes coupled with extensive support for entrepreneurs through our Market Access Accelerator. We turn ideas into reality, creating a flourishing ecosystem where SMEs and entrepreneurs thrive. We bring digital technology and new innovations to the NHS, by working with NHS Trusts, universities, digital developers, innovators and investors. Breakthrough innovation, which catalyses commercial and impactful technological solutions in healthcare, is our focus. Whether the approaches we enable are ideas from within the NHS, or from external companies, all of them seek to make the NHS more efficient and effective, support people and benefit patients.

Participants
For TheHill 2021 Market Access Accelerator, we are looking for 30 inspiring digital health innovative companies who are addressing real issues in healthcare: 15 in the earlier stage and 15 in the growth stage cohort; to help these companies scale and to commercialisation.

The earlier stage cohort includes start-ups that have an idea, concept or early prototype and need help to refine the business model and determine their value proposition for clinicians and the NHS.

The growth stage cohort companies would be those who have a beta product with regulatory approval (or no need for it) and ready to set up a pilot, service evaluation or first sale.

Timeline
We anticipate delivering one session per month for 6 months with over 300 hours of dedicated support to participating companies, including deep dive into NHS structures, seminars, workshops and 1:1 mentoring support.

Participants will receive

  • 1:1 Mentoring Support
  • Introductions to specialist and clinicians
  • Insight into NHS structures
  • Understanding NHS procurement
  • Access to data and stats for health & care market validation
