Bond is joining BIVDA as a member and Mr Groom will lead its Digital Working Party.

Helen Dent, Chief Operating Officer of BIVDA, said: “We’re delighted to have Bond Digital Health join us and to lead our Digital Working Party.

The expertise and experience that Bond brings will be invaluable in helping BIVDA deliver our strategic plan to drive, influence and shape the future of diagnostics for the benefit of patients.

“With leadership from Bond, and the input and innovation available through our member base, we look forward to bringing science and data together to meet the needs of the population and the economy over the coming years.”

The role of chair is to identify and deliver the digital strategy on behalf of BIVDA and its members through collaborative working and leadership. It involves setting the digital agenda, offering training, sharing expertise, and forming strong relationships with all stakeholders, including regulatory bodies.

Phil Groom said: “BIVDA is a highly regarded organisation in the diagnostics sector and I’m honoured to be asked to lead its Digital Working Party.

This is a fantastic opportunity for us to start important conversations with the industry around data and digital. We’ll use our expertise to co-create a digital product strategy with the industry and help them build better relationships with regulators. 

BIVDA has a belief that patients and end users should be in the front and centre of everything. This is a core value that we share which we demonstrate through the human-centric products we build for the lateral flow industry. Together we will help more people in the UK and the world.
