On September 29, 2021, NHSX announced phase-one winners of a Digital Health Partnership Award. Applications were submitted by NHS organizations in July 2021. The Award will help NHS organizations receive funding to accelerate the adoption of digital health products and services to monitor patients with long-term conditions remotely. There will be three categories of funding: projects requiring the support of up to £100,000, £250,000, and £500,000.

Fourteen projects have been awarded in the first phase. Some examples are provided below:

  • Respiratory remote monitoring program: will utilize existing virtual consultation technology in conjunction with a new asynchronous remote patient monitoring platform;
  • MSK (Musculoskeletal) care pathway;
  • Evidence-based scaling of virtual wards: an expansion of the virtual ward project (built on the innovative digital-first model of oximitry@home) to include a COPD;
