Newcastle, 15th June 2023

Motivait, the European supplier of Digital Engagement Solutions, is delighted to have supported and be part of the consortium for this Digital Health Hub which aims to better understand how to address health inequalities, promote proactive health monitoring, patient-involved care, and positive ageing.

The Northern Health Futures (NortHFutures) Digital Health Hub, led by Newcastle University, includes collaboration between six regional universities and seven NHS Trusts within the Integrated Care System (ICS) for the North East and North Cumbria. NortHFutures is one of five Digital Health Hubs funded across the UK as part of an £16.5m EPSRC pilot scheme.

Antony Jones, Motivait’s CEO, welcomed the announcement and commented: “As a Newcastle headquartered organisation, we are committed to developing Civic and Community Engagement Solutions here in the North East. Motivait is passionate about contributing to the development of our Region, but as a proven provider of Digital Solutions to over 40 million active users across 50 countries, we are also able to offer our experience in terms of scale, security and associated capabilities. From the outset, we recognised the synergistic opportunities and potential that this Digital Health Hub and our own placemaking digital solutions had to offer”.

The EPSRC-funded NortHFutures hub aims to create a world-leading healthcare technology (health-tech) research and innovation ecosystem that addresses health and social inequalities in the region by supporting inclusive digital skills training and sharing, responsible health-tech design and development, networking, and entrepreneurship.

The Hub combines the complementary strengths and resources of over 50 partners including six universities – Newcastle, Cumbria, Durham, Northumbria, Sunderland, and Teesside; seven NHS Trusts; regional, national and global industry partners; health and care providers; local authorities; innovation accelerators together with voluntary, community, and social enterprise sector organisations. Through an integrated, regional approach uniting this consortium for the first time, the aspiration is for NortHFutures to establish global leadership in Digital Health.
