Tech4CV19 is a volunteer led community helping bring the right technology solutions to health and social care during a time of rapid change and increased pressure

From App Developers to Zenware Experts, we have almost 1,000 members working together for the greater good.

COVID19 has created huge demand for technology across health and care, resulting in many IT suppliers offering a plethora of products and services.

With a host of offers from so many tech suppliers, it became a challenge for health and care providers to find the right solution to meet their immediate needs, as well as longer term requirements.

We recognised that help was required in navigating these offers and understanding the issues; Tech4CV19 is here to help match-make the health and care challenges with the technology offers to ensure we can work together to benefit all.

  • Capture offers of help from technology suppliers (digital, data and devices), and validate them
  • Create an effective way for health and care organisations and suppliers to collaborate
  • Enable health, social, care and voluntary staff to access and review offers of help
  • Support healthtech innovators to scale-up to allow greater impact.
