Data Driven Healthcare
1 August 2022
Forward-thinking and people-focused. Our healthcare system is the jewel in the UK’s crown. The West Midlands itself is no exception, hosting eight hospitals combined with over thirty-five regional centres of clinical research, with one in five of all UK trials carried out in the region.
The region’s Data-Driven Healthcare proposition is built upon four distinct pillars of opportunity: digital, data, diagnostics and devices. With unparalleled access to electronic clinical and genomic data, we have the capabilities to test and implement new healthcare interventions, unlike any other region.
Our unparalleled manufacturing expertise and tech capabilities enable firms to prototype, test and commercialise within the region - bench to bedside
The five leading universities produce over 11,000 graduates in medical sciences each year and a further 6,000 graduates in the engineering and computing fields. The pool for recruitment continues to grow and become even richer in talent.
