This program, that supports R&D and pilots in the field of digital health, is operated jointly by the Innovation Authority, the Ministry of Health, and the Headquarters for the National Digital Israel Initiative in the Ministry for Social Equality. The products submitted as part of this program must be ready for trial (after proof of feasibility and development of most of the product) and without additional significant R&D content.

The program’s goal is to advance the health system and public health in Israel and around the world by developing and applying innovative technologies in the field of digital health and by examining their feasibility among Israeli health organizations. The program also encourages the creation and growth of whole sustainable companies in the fields of digital health in Israel by advancing innovative technological solutions.

This program is intended for Israeli technology companies (that are not one of the Israeli health organizations) engaged in projects in the field of digital health that will be conducted in Israeli health organizations or will be based on their capabilities, data or information. Projects operating in this program will receive financial support of between 20%-50% of the approved R&D expenditure. Special support of 75% of approved R&D expenditure will be given for a project with potential for exceptional impact on advancing the health system and public health in Israel and worldwide or that constitutes a technological breakthrough in its field.
