A delegation of 10 Israeli health tech startups will visit the UK next month as part of an effort by UK healthcare organizations to address issues such as overcrowded clinics and inadequate resources, while building more modern and efficient healthcare offerings.
Companies such as AstraZeneca, NHSX, Care UK, Walgreens Boots Alliance, and Amazon Web Services will host the delegation for a number of events over the course of three days in London, where companies will present their product and meet one-on-one with relevant stakeholders.

The 10 startups, chosen from some 100 applicants, were selected as part of the TeXchange program, established by the British Embassy in Israel to connect UK companies to Israeli firms with promising digital solutions.
TeXchange is an initiative of the UK Israel Tech Hub within the Britsh Embassy in Tel Aviv. The hub, founded in 2011, promotes economic cooperation between Israel and the UK in areas of tech, business, and medicine. It helped facilitate over 80 bilateral tech partnerships, with a market worth of over £600 million (nearly $781,000 million.)
“Israel is a world-leading source for core technologies required to realize healthcare frameworks – Israeli tech has already proven its dominance in AI, computer vision, big data analytics and predictive analytics, to name but a few,” said Samuel Cronin, manager of healthcare innovation at the UK Israel Tech Hub, in a statement. “Based on its expertise in the building blocks of the new and future world of medicine, Israel is becoming an ideal candidate to advance healthcare.”
“This program is an important part of the strong, deep and modern partnership between Israel and the UK,” said Neil Wigan, the British ambassador to Israel. “Healthcare Innovation has become increasingly important to the UK, and could benefit greatly from Israel’s medical technology capabilities.”

Binah.ai – a Tel Aviv-based company offering an AI-powered, video-based vital sign monitoring app offering heart rate variability (HRV) measurements) and other health solutions.
