After much anticipation the Leeds based healthcare programme Propel@YH has announced the 14 startups shortlisted to join the turbo-charged digital health programme. Set to be a pioneering scheme, Propel@YH has been commissioned by the Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network and mHabitat.
The programme was created for SME’s creating digital innovations with the potential to improve the region’s health service and outcomes. Throughout the application process, organisations had to demonstrate their solutions and have an existing or budding presence within Yorkshire.
