The finalists, split into four groups, will have three minutes each to pitch their concept and then answer judges’ questions on a dedicated stage in front of an audience that will include members of the Digital Health CCIO, Health CIO, CNIO networks – the UK’s largest community of NHS IT leaders.
One winner will be selected from each group to go through to the final group of pitches at the end of the morning with an overall winner selected by the judges.
