Case Study: Improving PreOperative Assessments with Ultramed

Ultramed has been featured as a case study for University of Exeter Business Expertise. In the video Dr Paul Upton talks about improving PreOp services in the NHS, and wider healthcare, using Ultramed's innovative online PreOperative Assessment software. 

Through working with the South West Centre of Excellence in Satellite Applications (SWSoE), Ultramed had generated seed funding to help further develop MyPreOp and to gain bigger grant opportunities. In addition to the funding Ultramed has benefited from the University networks.

Working with Crowdcube, a former tenant of the University’s Innovation Centre, Ultramed raised the funding target within 2.5 days and ultimately over-funded by 300 per cent in late 2017.
