The Personalised & Connected Health (PCH) ecosystem is an open innovation network of start-ups, businesses, organizations, health professionals and researchers in the northern provinces of the Netherlands. The ecosystem facilitates the development of innovative digital products, connected devices and/or services that contribute to a Personal Health Environment. Such environments allow individuals to monitor information about their personal health and to work actively on improving it.
The ecosystem improves the chances of commercial success for PCH applications by bringing relevant parties together to collaborate on projects, or discuss challenges and opportunities. Research results are shared and discussed, and applicable information is distributed during communal expert sessions.
Parties located in the north of the Netherlands can apply for funding to cover up to a maximum of 40% of the costs for fundamental research, industrial research, experimental development or feasibility study.

The PCH network offers legal, financial and commercial support to businesses, start-ups and entrepreneurs who develop innovative digital products or services that contribute to (preventive) healthcare and well-being.
