The Yorkshire & Humber AHSN (Academic Health Science Networks), in partnership with mHabitat, announced the delivery of Propel@YH in January 2019.
Propel@YH is Yorkshire and Humber’s first regional digital health accelerator and supports organisations from across the world to bring their innovative digital health solutions to the region’s patients and the wider health economy.
Propel@YH will provide a unique and tailored set of advisory, guidance and supportive services, enabling digital health solutions to flourish within the region.
Recognising that the sales cycle within healthcare can be challenging and often lengthy, Propel@YH will provide a structured programme of support and advice that will enable organisations to accelerate their growth and market presence in the longer term.

Hosted by Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, mHabitat supports people-centred digital innovation in health and social care. We have a social purpose — to develop digital technologies for good that address real world problems.
At the core of everything we do, is co-design with patients, citizens and practitioners. mHabitat works with providers and commissioners of health and care services, third and public sector, digital innovators and health tech companies, academic organisations, and national bodies such as NHS England and NHS Digital. We help our partners collaborate and innovate for social good. We run digital innovation and inclusion projects, programmes and accelerators as well as advising on policy and strategy.
