TITCH -Technology in Child Health Workshop

The Yorkshire & Humber Academic Health Science Network (AHSN) is proud to be a key sponsor and partner of TITCH (Technology and Innovation Transforming Child Health) a national healthcare technology network dedicated to the development of technology solutions to help improve children’s healthcare.

TITCH focuses on the identification of areas of unmet need where new technology could have an impact for child health and identifies where innovative technologies can lead to best clinical practice and stimulates the adoption of these across the TITCH network.

TITCH focuses on 4 key areas:

  •  Evaluation – to facilitate the evaluation of a device or technology through the expert network.
  • Collaboration – the opportunity for network collaboration in the development of new technologies from validation of need to active collaboration on projects
  • Early adopter – TITCH can facilitate the identification of early adopter sites which may have an interest in a specific new technology.
  • Market ready – showcases devices that have gone through the process and are now commercially available.

The first TITCH workshop, to identify challenges and opportunities for technology in child health and meet with potential partners, will take place in Sheffield on Wednesday 2nd December at the Showroom Workstation from 12:30-18:00.
