UK health ‘Innovation Hub’ Opens at Dell Medical School

The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) and the Dell Medical School at The University of Texas at Austin are delighted to announce the establishment of the "ABHI Innovation Hub".

The creation of the Hub, a first for ABHI, will offer UK companies the opportunity to locate themselves at a world-class facility and develop their US business within an ecosystem of clinicians, investors and mentors. It offers companies a compelling office location, providing them the infrastructure to focus on accelerating market access in Texas and beyond.

The Hub will be located within Dell Med’s Health CoLab, a new initiative that provides space and creates connections for start-up companies that share the school’s mission to create healthier communities, starting in Austin and the surrounding area. The Health CoLab directly supports the school, seeking out innovation that promotes health, enhances medical services, increases care resources and access for people in this community in ways that can be scaled to other communities.

"The ABHI Innovation Hub at Dell Medical School will offer UK companies a unique opportunity to collaborate in a truly world class facility,” said Phil Kennedy, Chairman of the ABHI. “The Hub will support promising medical technology innovation whilst looking to develop value based healthcare for the benefit of patients in Texas, throughout the US and at home in the UK."

The Dell Medical School has a strong focus on supporting health entrepreneurs and businesses. In addition to the CoLab, companies that base themselves in the Innovation Hub will be able to participate in the 'Texas Health Catalyst,' a programme designed by the Dell Medical School to foster health research and advance innovation.

"We are very excited to be working with ABHI to strengthen ties between the UK and Austin across a variety of health and technology areas,” said Ruben Rathnasingham, Assistant Dean for Health Product Innovation at Dell Medical School. “We look forward to working with the ABHI, its members and the UK going forward."

The partnership also extends support to Texas-based companies that are looking to understand and enter the UK healthcare market. Through ABHI's International Membership scheme, companies looking to introduce innovative medical technology (MedTech) to the UK will be offered insight and market-access knowledge, as well as assistance from a number of partner organisations, including the UK's Department of International Trade.

“Through this collaboration, companies will be closer to a range of innovation initiatives that we have created and are continuing to create at Dell Med,” said Mellie Price, the school’s Executive Director of Commercialization. “They will find themselves in a rich, creative environment.”

The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) is the industry association for the medical technology sector in the UK. The ABHI’s mission is to champion the benefits and use of safe and effective medical technologies to deliver high quality patient outcomes. With over 260 members, the ABHI leads the advocacy of the industry in order to advance access to medical technology. Our membership includes some of the leading multinational businesses in the sector in the UK right the way through to small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs).

MEDICA Offers Global Platform for UK Companies

The Association of British Healthcare Industries (ABHI) is taking 120 UK companies to MEDICA 2017, highlighting the desire within the UK to forge deeper, more sustainable trading relationships as the country navigates its departure from the EU.

MEDICA 2017 offers a global platform for companies showcasing their innovative technologies. It also provides a strong platform for delegates to meet with distributors and buyers from around the world to discuss business with existing contacts and to meet with industry peers.

Paul Benton, Managing Director of International at ABHI, said: “The UK is open for business and is keen to forge global healthcare links. With 120 companies exhibiting, we are delighted that the UK Pavilion is at its capacity. The technology on show is a wonderful expression of what the industry has to offer in providing value-based healthcare solutions for patients across the globe.”

As the UK enters a new era for trade and business, the UK government has highlighted MedTech, and the broader Life Sciences sector, as having a critical role in its Industrial Strategy - to propel UK productivity once it leaves the EU. MedTech is now worth over £17 billion to the UK and is part of a £64 billion industry that is UK Life Sciences. A recent report, entitled The Life Sciences Industrial Strategy, has been welcomed by senior government ministers, and provides the framework for increased funding and support for the sector.

As well as supporting UK export globally, ABHI are also keen to speak to international companies wanting to do business within the UK. Their international membership has been set up to make it more accessible for global companies wishing to partner with their British counterparts.
