Comunitat Valenciana District Digital organizes  the Demo Day of the e-Health District Distrito e-HealthOpen Innovation Program, in a day that will take place next April 5 in Gandia and in which the startups participating in this challenge will present their intelligent solutions for the selection of winning projects. The event is co-organized with the Innsomnia accelerator and has the collaboration of the Gandia City Council.

This program is an initiative of the Comunitat Valenciana Digital District technology hub, which aims to attract entrepreneurial talent and create an innovation ecosystem in public-private collaboration in the Region of Valencia through open innovation programs based on startups.

Distrito e-Health is made up of the following five lines of action to offer digital solutions to health areas considered strategic for the health sector:

  • Improvement and optimization of primary care;
  • Sanitary prevention;
  • Vulnerable groups;
  • Digital transformation of the health sector;
  • Engagement and patient experience.

Startups of international origin

At the closing date of the talent selection process, on February 28, this global Health challenge had managed to attract a total of 118 applications from specialized startups with e-Health solutions. More than 30% of them are international firms, from more than 15 different countries, mainly from Germany and Finland.

Many of the solutions proposed by these startups are transversal to several of the proposed lines of action, a third of them for the execution of processes of the digital transformation challenge of the health sector, 23% aimed at health prevention, while the rest lines have had a fair share of 15% each.

Throughout the day on April 5, the final evaluation and selection of the startups most in line with the needs of the health sector will be carried out. The next step will be carrying out concept tests in entities of the Region of Valencia, based on the five challenges defined in the call.
