ABHI Expands US ‘Innovation Hub’
ABHI has taken another important step in supporting UK HealthTech companies do business in the US. Following its launch six months ago, ABHI’s Innovation Hub has proven to be of significant benefit to UK companies. As a result, the Hub will now be expanded to accommodate double the number of organisations.
The Hub is a unique partnership between ABHI and the Dell Medical School at the University of Texas in Austin, offering UK companies a base within the State of Texas to grow their business. With access to Dell’s world-class faculty, the Hub allows companies to take advantage of a network of clinical contacts, hospital systems, investors, and key business groups.
“The adoption and use of innovative technologies is the greatest enabler for delivering population health and value-based care. We are therefore delighted to be working with ABHI and the Innovation Hub members to deliver this”, added Ruben Rathnasingham, Assistant Dean for Health Product Innovation at Dell Medical School. He continued: “it is particularly pleasing to see just how successful this initiative has been, and I look forward to supporting more UK companies across Austin and the wider State.”
Applications to join the Innovation Hub are now being accepted. For further queries, or to apply to join, contact email@example.com

The Association of British HealthTech Industries (ABHI) supports the HealthTech community to provide products and services that help people live healthier lives. As the voice of the industry, we show the value of health technology and overcome barriers to people benefitting from it now and in the future. We shape how data and technology will transform healthcare and improve the lives of patients. We work with regulators and help companies understand the environment, so patients can access HealthTech safely and quickly. In turn, we insist on the highest professional standards and ethical behaviour so that the HealthTech industry is recognised as a trusted partner in healthcare. We encourage growth and help HealthTech companies to connect with new customers around the world. www.abhi.org.uk
