The ultra-observant of you will have noticed that I finally got to reach the fourth slider on our website intro so now we have an updated purpose: thank you to everyone who made helpful comments.. One of our new Board members pointed out that the DHACA website was not being indexed by Google so people couldn’t find us, so that has been sorted too.

As it was put together over five years ago, shortly we will be archiving the dallas material, unless any of you still need to access it – please let me know soon if you do.

We now have our own LinkedIn site – please do “follow” DHACA on LinkedIn and watch our presence grow.

Finally no newsletter could go without a plug for our next DHACA Day on 18th March – Keith Grimes’s talk has now been agreed as “What Babylon can teach startups – sharing lessons learned about prioritising safe innovation in digital health technology, and training the next generation of digital doctors”. Another good reason to attend! If you’ve not yet signed up for the day do please sign up soon so we can get a good idea of expected final audience.

Most fundable (chosen by the panel):
Winner – Kronikare – Husain Khaki
2nd – Uplift – Aalok Shukka
3rd – Art psHEALTH – Caris Marsh

Best Pitch (chosen by the audience):
Winner – Uplift – Aalok Shukka
2nd – KroniKare – Husain Khaki

There were lots of good conversations afterwards so hopefully the evening will prove very financially fruitful for all the participants.

And finally:

I hope you find these newsletter helpful and informative – comments with ideas to improve are always most welcome. I look forward to seeing as many as possible on March 18th!
