Availability of research and trial cooperation, clinical know-how and health data
The City of Helsinki is bringing the real-life research and trial environments, clients and experts of its basic health care and social welfare services to the Health Proof Helsinki collaboration.
“Helsinki wants to promote the growth and internationalisation of the health technology sector and strengthen the attractiveness of the Helsinki region as a place for research and business in the health sector. I believe that Health Proof Helsinki’s research and trial cooperation with the City’s Social Services and Health Care Division will help companies develop solutions that meet actual needs in health care and have even broader demand. The operations will further strengthen the City’s Testbed activities,” says Director of Economic Development Marja-Leena Rinkineva from the City of Helsinki.
HUS Helsinki University Hospital is looking to develop its corporate cooperation practices and is an active operator in the co-development, clinical testing and commissioning of health technologies and digital solutions in specialist health care.
“Utilising the clinical know-how and health data of HUS will promote the development of both new solutions and companies in the health care sector. The services of Health Proof Helsinki also provide companies with opportunities to take part in other networks as well, such as the CleverHealth Network innovation ecosystem coordinated by HUS, in terms of testing and validating digital solutions based on health data,” says Development Director Visa Honkanen from HUS.
