Bayer UK & Ireland (UKI) is a leading pharmaceutical company and aspires to provide world-class digital health technologies (DHTs) to underpin peoples’ health and wellbeing.

Bayer UKI believes that the way healthcare is provided in the UK needs to be via an integrated approach through innovative and transformative solutions that utilise digital therapeutics alongside more traditional interventions. These solutions can apply to different healthcare priorities, from supporting disease awareness and prevention programmes, enabling early and accurate diagnosis, to personalising healthcare pathways.

Therefore, our vision is: To Bring Digital Health to Life

Bayer has an established foothold in a range of therapeutic areas, including radiology, stroke, chronic kidney disease, oncology, ophthalmology and women’s health, and we have started to explore how the integration of DHT will lead to better patient outcomes. But we can’t achieve this mission alone. We intend to build on our existing partnerships – and develop new ones – to co-design DHTs that are purpose-built for the NHS.

Lister Logo small

"Regardless of digital transformation in the NHS, over 85% of Clinicians are still noting their tasks down on scrap pieces of paper or Excel/word handover sheets to remember, prioritise and manage their workload. Despite strenuous efforts from clinical teams, this inefficient process is time-consuming, risks data security breaches and safe clinical task delivery relies heavily on the stretched cognitive capabilities of a burnt-out workforce. 

Founded by two NHS clinicians, The Lister platform enables the MDT to handover and record their clinical tasks digitally using an intuitive and hyper-optimised user interface, obtaining real-time task data and providing unique operational, governance and workforce insights.  

Lister is currently undergoing real-world validation through various pilots and is excited to be part of the Leeds innovation community."
