wardWatch, who provide real time training opportunities for doctors, and Open Frequency, the Startup accelerator, are now working together to develop the wardWatch business.

The partnership sees Open Frequency become a shareholder in the wardWatch business in return for the provision of strategic, technical and design expertise. Open Frequency’s CEO Mark Roger said:

“When we initially met wardWatch, we were hugely impressed by the skills and experience of Dr Matt Pendleton, and the research and development that had already been carried out. Additionally, both Matt and the business concept had proven its credentials via market interest, awards and grants. We felt that Open Frequency was uniquely positioned to be able to help drive the business forward and we are delighted that we are now in partnership together.’

The project is now in the development phase, with a push into the market in 2017 with a developed product and offering that both companies fully expect will position wardWatch as market leaders in the space. Dr Matt Pendleton said:

“We are very excited by the partnership with Open Frequency and the prospect of working with their highly experienced and specialised team. It’s clear from their pedigree as individuals within the digital space, coupled with our clinical experience that we will be able to create a highly compelling proposition that we fully believe will deliver real benefits to training on hospital wards - and therefore to patients - in 2017 and in the future.”
