Oxehealth Listed as a Global Digital Health 100 Honouree

The Journal of mHealth has today announced their annual Global Digital Health 100 recognising the most innovative health technology companies from around the world.
Oxehealth has been listed in the Top 100 Disruptive Companies in Healthcare, a report compiled by The Journal of mHealth which provides insight into the key sector trends that are emerging from across the healthcare continuum when it comes to the adoption of technology-led products and services.

Hugh Lloyd-Jukes, Oxehealth CEO, commented: 

“Nurse and carers are the heroes of healthcare; the Oxehealth team are working tirelessly to ensure the Digital Care Assistant gives them more time for hands of care where and when they are needed most. I’m thrilled that that the Journal of mHealth’s expert team have recognised the importance of Oxehealth’s Digital Care Assistant and included us in their Global Digital Health Award 100, alongside several other luminaries in the digital health space.”

The Global Digital Health 100 is one of the HealthTech industries foremost technology award programmes, celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship. It recognises and supports health technology companies that are demonstrating the greatest potential to change the way that healthcare is delivered. 

This year's 100 sees many new entrants from all sides of the HealthTech spectrum, from new innovators looking to apply technologies like artificial intelligence and virtual/augmented reality to healthcare, to solution providers who are demonstrating rapid growth in more established tech-led services like telehealth, digital therapeutics and behavioural change programmes.

Matthew Driver, Managing Editor of The Journal of mHealth, said: 

“One of the most profound differences identifiable in this year’s cohort is the number of technology providers who are delivering their solutions at scale. In past years, many of our featured technologies have been limited by their relatively small user groups, but as the healthcare technology market continues to mature we are now beginning to see more and more solutions that are successfully delivering these technology-driven modalities to much larger user bases.”

Identifying the 100 

The Global Digital Health 100 represents 6 months of analysis by the editorial and advisory team at The Journal of mHealth, who considered the offerings and innovations from companies across the HealthTech ecosystem.

The selected 100 companies demonstrate true innovation and the opportunity to disrupt the delivery of healthcare at scale. The selection criteria ensure that companies are considered truly upon innovation, allowing start-up offerings to be compared alongside established and larger organisations.
