Our story begins in 2014 when our founder, Victoria, established a small project to scope the value of digital technologies across two NHS Trusts in Leeds.

Through trial and error, it soon became clear that the value of digital technologies can be great but the basics are often not in place and the ‘know-how’ missing. It is all too common for great ideas to never reach fruition or digital tools to be licensed without ever being embedded in practice.

We saw an opportunity to address this problem by bringing patients, citizens and practitioners together with digital innovators, health tech companies and academia to design, develop, deploy and evaluate digital tools that really make a difference. We chose the name mHabitat because we are passionate about creating the best conditions for this to happen and we’ve spent the last three years learning how to do this well.
