The Oxford Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) has launched a roadmap and guide to help innovators overcome the challenges in developing digital products to improve health.
It helps innovators ask the right questions at every stage, including design and development, interoperability, information governance and data management, regulatory framework, clinical testing and developing a commercial model.
The roadmap and guide were developed after identifying a gap in support for SMEs developing and commercialising digital health products including health management apps, wearable tech and online interactions.
Dr Nick Scott-Ram, Oxford AHSN’s Director of Commercial Development, said: “We hope those involved in developing innovative digital products designed to improve patient care will find this an invaluable resource.”
The resources were produced in collaboration with the University of Oxford, Oxford University Innovation and Oxentia.
