  8. 8. 8 THE CHALLENGES
  9. 9. THE COGNITIVE CHALLENGE Preserve Brain Health Opportunity Early detection of cognitive changes in people living with neurological conditions can enable early/accelerated intervention; ultimately positively impact their and their caregivers’ lives Challenge Digital solution that is sensitive enough to detect early changes in cognitive function and reliably measures decline/progress overtime Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Identify early indicators of cognitive impairment and/or decline  (Passively) monitor changes in cognition over time  Predict progression of cognitive decline and risk stratify patients  Develop meaningful cognition-related outcomes (relevant to patient, caregivers, clinicians, payor)  Identify/detect differences in cognitive impairment related to different disease areas (AD, MS, Parkinson's)  Correlation/link between cognitive and functional decline Prerequisites for the solution  Language and culture neutral  Independent of gross motor skills  Not related to knowledge (educational level) Other things to consider  What is the baseline the solution is measuring against?  Is one solution sensitive enough for both MS/AD? 9
  10. 10. THE MOVEMENT CHALLENGE Understanding Physical Activity & Capacity Opportunity Physical movement is often a great indicator of the evolution of a disease or the efficacy of a treatment. Challenge Any solution that can measure movement, activity, physical ability & capacity, more accurately than what is available today. Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Measure movement, possibly to distinguish a variety of different movements  Guarantee precision and accuracy of these measurements of movement  Compare all actual movement measurement solutions /activity trackers (sensors, phone, etc)  Understand how the body progresses in the environment around it  Imagine a home or a broader environment that understands a patient’s physical activity (IoT, smart homes, etc.)  Measure activity of people in wheelchairs, using walkers, crutches, prosthetics  Easy to read/understand data visualization of the tracking Prerequisites for the solution  The solution has to be as straightforward as possible (no manual input, no need for frequent battery charge, etc.) 10
  11. 11. THE PATIENT CHALLENGE Helping Patients Manage Their Condition Opportunity After being diagnosed with a disease or a chronic condition, patients are left with a multitude of daily decisions to make to improve their condition, prevent deterioration or episodes. Challenge Any solution that can help patients manage a disease, monitor symptoms, optimize a treatment, get real time feedback and disease history visualization. Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Monitor symptoms and episodes: record flare-ups / seizures / exacerbation,  Monitor evolution / deterioration / progression of the disease  Prepare relevant information for the physician appointment  Give advice for day to day decisions  Connect with other ecosystems (HealthKit, CareKit, Withings, etc.)  Connect with other patients / physicians / nurses / family & friends, and help find emotional support  Solution could be IoT related (mirror, fridge, bed, etc.) Prerequisites for the solution  Solutions should help patients with chronic conditions like Asthma, Psoriasis, Epilepsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Acne, Migraine, etc. in the long run  The solution has to be very easy to use with as little manual input as possible  Continuous and passive monitoring is preferable  Beautiful and engaging look&feel of the solution 11
  12. 12. THE RESPIRATORY CHALLENGE Improving Asthma Treatment Opportunity Asthma patients have to manage their disease on a day-to-day basis. The physician does not have sufficient information at hand and too little time to fully assess the patient, or guide him, while the patient has too little information about his own condition to effectively participate in the discussion or manage his condition by himself. Challenge Digital solution that will improve the life of patients with Asthma. Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Optimize the limited time with the patient at ‘point of care’, for example by allowing the patient to provide information to the physician ahead of time and facilitate the, evaluation of the disease  Decision making tools (about treatments and lifestyle choices) to both the patient and the physician  Improve patients’ experience and treatment outcomes  Understand the climatic conditions and pollen load as potential triggers, to predict and avoid exacerbations  Take the right dose at the right time to optimize comfort, sleep, QoL  Help patients better navigate through the healthcare system  Allow the payor to measure treatment outcomes value for their insured population Prerequisites for the solution  Solutions can be based on the signals collected from the eBreezhaler (tech specifications on demand).  Language and culture neutral  Leverages existing technology (e.g., mobile devices) and non-proprietary systems.  Not related to knowledge (educational level) 12
  13. 13. THE RETINA CHALLENGE Reduced Patient Burden, Better Outcomes Opportunity Patients with retina diseases need to have different eye examinations in the clinic on regular schedule to monitor their disease activity and decide if treatment is needed. These visits are a burden on patients and providers and drive unnecessary expense. Challenge Affordable, digital, at home monitoring tool that permits patients to self- monitor and transmit results to doctors, thus avoiding unnecessary and expensive clinic visits. Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Ability to safely view and record high resolution images of the retina – equivalent to images generated by OCT and fundus cameras  Ability to monitor evolution / deterioration / progression of the disease  Transmit information to physician and / or prepare relevant information for the physician appointment  Remind patients of scheduled time for self—evaluation / monitoring  Record and store images / information generated by the device / solution  Home-based, low patient burden – without need for frequent recharging Prerequisites for the solution  Affordable – less than $100  Simple, safe, and easy to use, especially for older, less tech-savvy patients  Not related to knowledge (educational level) Other things to consider  Can the device/solution be used both by the patient and by a novice caregiver?  Is a separate solution required for pediatric patients, for geriatric patients? 13
  14. 14. THE HEART CHALLENGE Predicting Heart Failure Opportunity Heart failure is a gradual condition often mistaken for signs of aging. Early prediction of heart failure could help more than 12 million patients live longer, more normal lives and reduce significantly the extraordinary cost burden through reduced rates and length of hospitalization. Challenge Digital biomarkers or similar early diagnostic solutions to identify as early as possible patients either at risk for heart failure or diagnosed for heart failure but undertreated. Specific areas for consideration/ criteria for success  Early diagnosis of heart failure – 1-2 years earlier than current standard of care  Uses digital biomarker/big data-predictive algorithm to diagnose/predict heart failure or patients potentially at risk of heart failure  (Passively) monitors disease progression or symptoms progression and identify likely undertreatment.  Risk-stratification algorithm or other data-driven mechanism to identify high risk patients  Leverages user-supplied data or existing/available data (e.g. credit card data) to support predictive, learning algorithms Prerequisites for the solution  Language and culture neutral  Globally/universally applicable  Not related to knowledge (educational level) Other things to consider  Is a single approach possible for undiagnosed patients as well as diagnosed but likely undertreated patients? 14
