NHS Scotland in partnership with Highland and Island Enterprise and Scottish Government's aim of this £400,000 SBRI competition is to identify and fund innovative technology that enables personalised care, better education and remote monitoring for people living with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).

The competition is particularly looking for solutions that
Improve patient experience and outcomes for people living in Scotland with an IBD diagnosis
can be applied to other medical conditions
We are looking for innovative digital solutions that include, but are not limited to, the following areas:
• enabling citizens to better manage their IBD through better lifestyle and prevention or early intervention approaches, combined with enhanced medication and treatment compliance
• empowering individuals, promoting independence and helping people to be more involved in decisions about their care

To assist companies wanting to apply to take part in this challenge an information event is being held in Inverness at An Lòchran on the afternoon of the 4th April where companies can hear directly from gastroenterology clinicians and patient representatives to discuss and understand their requirements.

Having attended this event companies will have had an opportunity to:
