Swedish company Strikersoft has chosen Cornwall as a testbed for its eHealth applications.
Strikersoft and Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust have signed a partnership agreement aimed at leveraging a range of health-related IT and mobile application innovations. The main focus of the partnership will be to develop care processes and test eHealth applications with NHS staff.
Nicola Lloyd, Head of Inward Investment at Invest in Cornwall said “Cornwall’s health tech sector is full of leading minds who are constantly looking to push boundaries and strengthen the relationship between innovation, technology and healthcare. The region’s streamlined system – with a single NHS Trust and one Clinical Commissioning Group – makes it a highly attractive proposition for investors.”
“For innovators in healthcare, Cornwall has a lot to offer. A streamlined healthcare system, with just a single NHS Trust, one Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and one local authority, makes the region an obvious choice for many looking to access the healthcare system in the UK. A more agile network of decision makers can allow businesses to focus more time on their product/service, and ultimately, the end user, in comparison to more complex structures often seen throughout the rest of the UK and Europe. Furthermore, the region’s dispersed pockets of ageing and rural patients make it a realistic landing pad for health technology businesses.”
