Meet the Leadership Team

Hi, I'm Michael Bell, Partner at Acorn Compliance 

After more than 25 years of experience in the technology industry and a lifetime of passion for the healthcare sector, I decided it was time to start sharing my expertise with the healthtech sector helping startups and established companies succeed in this highly regulated sector. 

Acorn compliance was born out of my experience as a healthtech entrepreneur (having founded 2 startups in this sector) and my extensive work experience as a consultant with NHSX, NHS and various healthcare and healthtech providers.

Hi, I'm Roxana Valea, Partner at Acorn Compliance 

During my 25 years of experience as a management consultant and entrepreneur I came to love performance improvement and I constantly strive to apply it in everything that I do. I learned that simplification holds the keys to innovation, and this is what I bring to the business world.  

Acorn Compliance was born out of my experience with standardising systems and processes, my technology consulting expertise with leading innovators (Apple, e-Bay and Sony) and my passion for entrepreneurship as a founder of 3 startups.

Our Value Proposition

DTAC is a minimum and living safety standard for the NHS market. For a company to be able to sell its products to the NHS it needs to get DTAC compliant first.

The earlier you start working towards compliance the better. Neglecting this domain leads to what we call compliance debt, which is costly to remedy later on.

We help healthtech be a better and safer space by ensuring healthtech products are deployed and used in a safe way.

We demystify, unpick, and simplify compliance for healthtech companies. We help you achieve and maintain compliance across all DTAC domains:

  • Clinical safety
  • Data protection
  • Cyber Security
  • Interoperability
  • Usability and accessibility

To us, DTAC is not just a tick box - we help startups get compliant and stay compliant by installing a culture of compliance.

Our expertise in interoperability, clinical safety, cyber security and data protection allows us to offer a unique integrated compliance service.

We are much more than a compliance partner. We can get involved in product development aspects and provide valuable advice and feedback on how to incorporate compliance requirements early on.
