Health Foundry aims to improve health and wellbeing by bringing together a wide range of people, start-ups and organisations and supporting them to create scalable digital health solutions.
We believe that the best digital health solutions are created by bringing together a diverse range of stakeholders who understand healthcare challenges as well as digital solutions and opportunities.
We want to help start-ups in healthcare innovation receive input from the professionals and service users who will benefit from their product.
We want to support health professionals and academics exploit data and digital assets in order to develop new insights and outcomes.
We want to help individuals and groups come together to better understand healthcare issues and collaborate to build effective digital solutions.
We believe that this requires a supportive and collaborative environment, where members of the community access shared resources and learning; where joint working is engendered through increased connectivity, and where digital solutions are created and strengthened in an open and synergistic process.
Health Foundry is a pilot in how to improve health and wellbeing by creating a supportive and collaborative environment for people interested in digital health. We do this through three key tools:
Health Foundry is located across from St. Thomas' hospital in Waterloo and provides 350 sq. m. of inspiring workspace designed by Architecture 00 to support start-ups, organisations and individuals as they build and grow their ideas.
