Px Healthcare won £60,000 in funding from the Scottish Government to keep developing their products and scale them across Scotland. This funding was in addition to the £30,000 originally awarded to organisations involved in the Healthier Lives Data Fund. This fund is a partnership between Nesta and the Scottish Government which, over the last year, has supported six projects in Scotland that demonstrated what can be achieved when health or care data is used to give control back to the individual. The projects on this programme have been developing and showcasing the potential of a new generation of data-driven, people-centred digital technology.

Px Healthcare will use this funding to continue developing OWise for prostate cancer.
