Ultramed in the top 100

Julie Baldwin |25, February, 2021

Ultramed has been featured in The First UK Digital Health Companies Playbook, published by the Department for International Trade.

The ‘First 100 companies’ were selected after a rigorous process based on criteria including how committed they were to export and international expansion, the global uniqueness of their innovation, a track-record of working collaboratively with Healthcare UK, their responsiveness, and how well they represent the UK journey and direction in digital health, particularly with the NHS. The list will be reviewed and maintained regularly and released formally twice a year.

The aim of the report is to identify some of the best British talent in Digital Health and link it with worldwide opportunities.

Ultramed has scaled from 3 to 13 employees in the last 18 months.  Ten employees live in Cornwall.  My PreOp allows patients to provide their information online and up-to half of the patients avoid a preoperative assessment hospital visit.  This is convenient for patients, saves nursing time and reduces travel resulting in carbon saving.

Mr Pre-Op was selected for the prestigious NHS Accelerator in 2020 and secured Innovate UK funding.  My PreOp is now live in 11 major UK hospitals with regional and national level discussions about rapid adoption and spread by the NHS.  A first export contract has also been secured.
