Celebrations commence as Elemental make Digital Leaders ‘Healthtech Innovation’ 100 shortlist
We’re delighted to reveal that Elemental has made the Top 10 shortlist in the ‘HealthTech Innovation’ category in this year’s prestigious Digital Leaders 100 awards.
The 2020 Digital Health awards received a large number of entries from across the UK, which have now been whittled down to a high-calibre shortlist of 10 finalists whose products or services have leveraged technology to improve healthcare provision or service efficiency, in the last year.
“As a team, Elemental are absolutely ecstatic to be included in the prestigious 2020 Digital Leaders 100 shortlist. To be recognised as a health tech innovator alongside services such as NHS Digital and Space Finder is a huge honour. Coming from a background of community development, we set out to mainstream social prescribing and make huge impacts to the lives of thousands of people around the UK and Ireland. It’s not just tech for the sake of tech, it’s tech for good, designed with a people first approach.” Elemental Co-Founder/CEO Jennifer Neff

CREATING PARTNERSHIPS AND PROVIDING SOLUTIONS
Elemental is an award winning Tech For Good company that is bridging the gap between health, housing, local government and the community via their portfolio of digital social prescribing products and consultancy services, designed to support the strategy and practice of self-care and independence and community resilience.
Former community development workers, Jennifer Neff and Leeann Monk, developed Elemental to halt health inequalities by connecting people, building communities and improving lives. They have played a major role in the uptake and adoption of the social prescribing movement that has seen communities gain better access to programmes, services and support in their local neighbourhoods that improve their mental and physical wellbeing.
“Social prescribing, sometimes referred to as community referral, is a means of enabling GPs, nurses and other primary care professionals to refer people to a range of local, non-clinical services” – The King’s Fund.
Elemental has successfully grown a network of commercial partnerships across GB, NI and wider Europe. To support the continued planned growth Elemental is looking to appoint a Business Development Manager to help us continue to grow our footprint throughout the UK, Ireland, Europe and Canada.
