The ‘Pfizer Healthcare Hub: London’ aims to help companies who have demonstrated their potential to transform the lives of patients through digital innovation by connecting them to expertise within Pfizer and Pfizer’s networks in the UK and beyond.

As part of a global network of Pfizer Healthcare Hubs, the initiative aims to work with some of the best and brightest health tech start-ups, pursuing the vision of transforming people’s lives through innovative solutions to real-world problems.

Around the world people are already accessing health information from different digital resources night and day. Digital innovation has the potential to transform the lives of people with health issues, from monitoring heart rate and blood pressure in real time to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) in patient care, advances in technology are helping patients to live healthier, happier, informed and connected lives.

The Hub is led by Dr Hamish Graham, Pfizer, who helps digital innovators focus on tackling the challenges that will have the greatest potential impact on patients or providers. Hamish works with Pfizer’s experts in the UK, and globally, and leads the Hub's collaborations with NHS digital exemplar sites, the Academic Health Science Networks and other partners.
