The Digital Health Technology Catalyst (DHTC) is a £35m fund run over four years as part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund. It is a core element of the government’s plans to implement the Accelerated Access Review (AAR).

It aims to address challenges the review identified in the development of digital health innovations, and to help grow the digital health sector.
