You have less than a week to get your entries in for Rewired Pitchfest 2021 – a competition which celebrates the best and brightest in digital health innovation.

Aimed at early stage start-ups, innovators and entrepreneurs, Pitchfest applicants are given the chance to showcase their idea in front the Rewired audience (which is mainly made up of NHS IT leaders) and investors.

The competition is taking place during Digital Health Rewired 2021, with zoom-hosted heats from 15-18 March and a grand final on Friday 19 March.

New to our judging panel for 2021 are Jenny Thomas, programme director at DigitalHealth.London and Richard Corbridge, CIO at Boots, who will pick our finalists alongside Digital Health’s CEO, Jon Hoeksma.

Also, for the second year running, the CW Innovation programme – run jointly by Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and their charity, CW+ – will offer winners a real-world test bed in whichever care setting their concept or start-up is based.

The deadline for applications has been extended to 5pm on Monday 11 January.

Entrants should be start-ups or registered businesses that have been established for less than three years. They should also be health and social care services, medical devices, consumer health and wellbeing or life sciences must be their primary focus of activity.
