Jersey is an attractive location to experiment and develop new digital health technologies. The Island’s strengths are increasingly being harnessed by a growing community of digital & health professionals endeavouring to develop new capabilities, technologies and jobs.
The Island of Jersey is the perfect environment for health innovation. The Island provides an efficient platform from which to study and address medical challenges and offers the opportunity to test medical applications in settings easily scalable to a global market place and also to test technology such as Internet of Things applications; potentially supported by a Digital Health research programme funded by grants from trusts and individuals.
Digital Jersey and its partners are actively developing relationships with technology providers including Apple, Microsoft, IBM and Samsung, and medical leaders such as the NHS, HSCiC, Digital Health Oxford, EMIS Health, The Royal College of Nursing and the Nursing Midwifery Council.
The current development of a new hospital will provide a unique opportunity for the Island to develop a state-of-the-art facility incorporating the latest technology and a showcase for innovative, contemporary patient care.
