    Systems, partnerships & integration
    Lack of data surrounding the use of technology in healthcare
    Technology is not a panacea

    THEME 1:
    SYSTEMS, PARTNERSHIPS & INTEGRATION
  • 9
    SYSTEMS, PARTNERSHIPS AND INTEGRATION
    The complexity and scale required to make impactful changes in healthcare necessitate partnerships between public and private players as well as between innovators and industry giants.
    These partnerships should aim to deliver integrated solutions rather than standalone products.
    “It is system of systems that are necessary to scale solutions - therefore vertical partnerships are imperative.”
    - Dr. Judith Rodin -
    President, The Rockefeller Foundation
  • 10
    THEME 2:
    THERE IS A LACK OF DATA SURROUNDING THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE
  • 11
    THERE IS A LACK OF DATA SURROUNDING THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE
    The lack of statistically relevant studies on the impact of technology keeps questions about efficiency, costs and outcomes unanswered and is one of the barriers that must be overcome in order to bring about change. Can we innovate in parallel as the industry gathers this data?
    “5-year clinical trials,17-year adoption timelines are too long.”
    - David Gustaftson, Ph.D -
    University of Wisconsin, Madison
  • 12
    THEME 3:
    TECHNOLOGY IS NOT A PANACEA
  • TECHNOLOGY IS NOT A PANACEA
    13
    “Four prongs needed for proper delivery of healthcare: Leadership, Institutions, Systems, Technology (L.I.S.T.).”
    - Julio Frenk -
    Harvard School of Public Health
    Technology as a tool will enable us to make dramatic changes in the mechanisms used to deliver healthcare. However, technology must be implemented in concert with changes in all other aspects of the value-chain.
  • 14
    THEME 4:
    CHANGING HEALTHCARE IS ABOUT CHANGING BEHAVIOR
  • CHANGING HEALTHCARE IS ABOUT CHANGING BEHAVIOR
    15
    "Health ultimately depends on behavior and that is a difficult thing to change"
    - Vijay Vaitheeswaran -
    The Economist
    Making changes to healthcare that result in positive improvements in outcomes for patients will require behavioral changes from all participants in the healthcare system – patients, providers, institutions, etc. We should shift our focus to the specific changes in behavior we need to change through the use of technology.

  • SELECT COMMENTARY
    30
  • Verizon Wireless
    Overview
    Verizon’s entrance into the Healthcare space is still early but they expressed tremendous interest in partnering and openly spoke of meetings with other Pharma companies including Pfizer.
    One of the key advantages of their future 4G network over others is that theirs will have the least amount of roaming, providing the most “secure” network for healthcare communications.
    Food for Thought
    Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Qualcomm all had booths at the mHealth Summit. Orange was also a key participant.
    Telecom’s role in Healthcare is still to be determined but it seems that both Verizon and AT&T are interested in building a “Health Information Exchange” and in some ways becoming a “cloud” for healthcare information.
    Where will Telecom end up in the Healthcare value chain?
    31
  • PROTEUS BIOMEDICAL
    Overview
    Proteus Biomedical makes “intelligent” medical products including “trackable pills.” Novartis recently invested $24 million in Proteus and plans to seek FDA approval within the next 18 months for the “microchipped pills.”
    Food for Thought
    How will consumers adapt to injectabletechnology?
    32
  • CELLUCARE
    Overview
    Cellucare, creator of a virtual medical clinic focusing on chronic illness, was recently purchased by Abraxis Health, a spinoff of Abraxis Bioscience owned by Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong. Abraxis Health is a private company focused on innovation within the wireless medical arena.
    Food for Thought
    Abraxis Health is one of many companies present at the mHealth Summit seeking to be a player in the next generation of Healthcare delivery systems and its acquisition of a video health delivery system is going to be the norm as the industry’s bigger players start consolidating innovators.
    33
  • Overview
    EPI is the maker of EPI Life, a mobile device with an integrated Electrocardiogram and Health Suite function. One of the reasons why they chose not to create their product as an iPhone attachment was to demonstrate that their product could be integrated directly into the device.
    Food for Thought
    Each monitoring solution comes with its own “cloud” management for data. Will consumers want to have their data stored in multiple clouds?
    34
    ePhone International PTE Ltd
  • Tigertext
    Overview
    Platform to deliver “secure” text messages – messages that “do not live forever. They are eager to seek partners interested in utilizing their platform.
    Food for Thought
    The Regulatory Impact on innovation cannot be ignored and the need for secure and private communications channels between all participants of healthcare delivery will grow.
    35
  • IPPLEX
    Overview
    Ipplex has technologies in the telemedicine area (video delivery systems) as well as in augmented reality. They are part of the company whose technology was sold to Google and became the foundation for “Google Goggles.
    Food for Thought
    The advantages of telemedicine are obvious and technology companies are rushing to build “the” platform of the future. Will there be “one” platform or will we have fragmented systems as we do today?
