DigitalHealth.London: DigitalHealth.London is an incubator and health tech hub launched in 2016. It was set up in response to the London Health Commission’s recommendation for the creation of a digital health hub; a marketplace where digital solutions could be brought and sold – one where industry wanted to come and do business, and where patients and the public would benefit. http://digitalhealth.london/
