We co-create sustainable health innovation
Gatekeepers, Bridge-Builders & Accelerators

Nordic Health Lab is an innovative, Danish Non Profit with the vision of creating a foundation for future health solutions. We do this by building bridges between the public healthcare system and private companies.

We match commercial suppliers and knowledge institutions with the public healthcare system to accelerate innovative solutions that ensure our future health.

We collaborate with innovative hospitals and municipalities where private companies can test and co-create their solutions together with healthcare professionals.

What do we do?

We collaborate with both Danish and international partners from different industries to share knowledge, to test innovative solutions and to grow an inspirational hub for international healthcare.

We have an extensive network in mainly the Nordics, and we are extending our global reach as there are many mutual needs in healthcare worldwide.

We would love to hear from your company, if you are interested in knowing more about the partnerships opportunities.


We help companies of all sizes, that already have prototypes, to screen and qualify their solutions. Our task is to build a fast-track test process that creates documentation, value proposition and possibilities for implementation of their innovative health solution.

We also guide and advise startups and SMEs, so they are ready to raise capital after testing their prototypes at NHL.

Hospitals & Municipalities

We collaborate with innovative and collaborative hospitals and municipalities that are involved with dedicated resources both at management level and with innovation consultants.

We help identify the specific needs of the hospitals so we can find the exact healthcare solutions, they are looking for. For instance, solutions that free up time for staff or solutions that optimize patient and staff experiences.

At these hospitals and municipalities, we facilitate test runs of the companies’ solutions – in close collaboration with healthcare professionals innovation consultants.

We ensure that solutions are tested, realized, and aimed at implementation.

One of our goals is to increase the value of companies after they have tested, improved and co-created their solution in a professional healthcare environment.

We have either co-created, trained or had test runs for companies with innovative solutions such as:

  • Artificial intelligence in the emergency room

  • Database search for MR-scannings (NordInsight)
  • An award-winning app for patient communication

NHL focuses on sustainable healthcare
Our focus is on economic, social and environmental sustainability


Our population is growing while we live longer. At the same time many people have chronic diseases. Consequently, the healthcare system must take care of more citizens but without enough resources available. That puts tremendous pressure on the healthcare service. Therefore, more public-private partnerships are needed to create new, radical health solutions for the benefit of all.
This way, we create the best sustainable health solutions.

We divide sustainable health solutions into three parts:


Solutions that enable treatment and monitoring of citizens in their homes.


Solutions that ensure early acknowledgement of disseases and that increase the chances of​ timely handling.

Work smarter

Improve staff satisfaction and retention, create better quality of care and simplify complex procedures.

NHL hosts international delegations

We have hosted Canadian delegations including ministers and hospital directors who have come to learn more about our take on healthcare solutions. In these events, we have learned that we share the same challenges in the healthcare systems across the Atlantic which gives excellent reasons to continue our international collaboration.
