MedTech 50

It’s time to help decide BusinessCloud’s inaugural MedTech 50 ranking.

The new annual ranking celebrates the UK’s most innovative startups, scaleups and established firms helping to diagnose and treat existing conditions – mostly in a hospital or clinical setting – and other biotechnology companies.

It is running alongside the inaugural HealthTech 50, which is focused on businesses creating technology for personal and preventative healthcare, as well as GP practice management and messaging platforms. You can access the HealthTech 50 voting page here.

We have shortlisted around 110 firms for potential inclusion. The final MedTech 50 ranking will be determined by a combination of reader votes and selections from an expert judging panel (available here).

You can cast your vote until 23:59 on Sunday June 27th. Browse the shortlist below and vote for the company you believe to be the most innovative.

The final MedTech 50 ranking will be published online on Monday 19th July. Subscribe to our daily email tech innovation newsletter via the dropdown below when you vote to be among the first to see the results.
