Startups and corporations alike are typically challenged by a dearth of healthcare data when determining pricing models and a unique value proposition to health systems. Hosted by ACCESS Health and SGInnovate, this event will discuss how data-driven partnerships can benefit startups in Singapore and discuss the features of a symbiotic relationship between healthcare operators, industry, and governments. The event aims to bring together all ecosystem stakeholders for knowledge sharing and networking purposes.
The talk will feature Health Catalyst, a US-based data science company which IPO’d in July 2019. Elia Stupka, SVP and General Manager of Life Sciences at Health Catalyst, will describe how their data, health systems insights, and approach to healthcare transformation can help nurture an ecosystem for digital health innovation. He will also share the company’s vision for working with startups, offering an opportunity to learn from a former digital health unicorn and now listed company on how it grew from a two-person ICT team from Intermountain Healthcare into a 700-strong team centred on the values of integrity, humility, and outcomes.
