“We are looking forward to building relationships with healthcare providers and peers to see how we can offer our Gro Health app using 5G and IoT devices to improve the care of patients in Scotland.”
Lara Moloney, Head of S5G Connect welcomed the winners along with key challenge owners, Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership and Scottish Care and technical advisors AWTG. She said:
“Our first Innovation Challenge is realising our ambition to bring businesses into our hub and helping them to use 5G technology to create new, innovative solutions. We are all very excited about the high calibre of winners and look forward to working with them to get their products and services market ready to ultimately improve health and social care delivery.
