A new informatics hub developed by Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) in the UK will be kick-started with a GBP1 mn fund from NHS Digital. The unit, called DRIVE (Digital, Research, Informatics and Virtual Environments) has been developed as part of a partnership between GOSH, University College London (UCL) and leading firms in the technology, artificial intelligence (AI) and digital innovation spaces.

An initial contribution of GBP1 mn will be made by NHS Digital for "fit out, equipment and infrastructure costs" associated with the project.
DRIVE is described as being a hot-house for healthcare technology exploration, as well as a launchpad for concepts that can be scaled-up by NHS Digital through regional and local programmes.
