HealthStartup Conference on Health Data Integration, London

conferences / work

The HealthStartup conferences give participants an opportunity to redesign the healthcare industry.  Our boutique conference is known for its powerful format that facilitates intense networking and is focused on helping disruptive, high-potential digital health startups succeed.  Our theme for the London event in 2012 was health data integration.

In brief, we invited a select group of approximately 100 investors, entrepreneurs and healthcare decision makers to ‘go deep’ on a specific topic in digital health. The format includes panel discussions with topic experts after which we focus our attention on 8 high-potential startups. Each participating startup has been chosen from dozens of candidates through a stringent screening process on one criterion: their potential to make a significant difference to healthcare. The goal of the event is to maximize that potential.

Following the panel discussions and presentations, we break out in small groups for an intense feedback session with each startup.  For the entrepreneurs involved it is often the most intense and rewarding feedback session they will ever have. For delegates, it is an opportunity to make a real difference to healthcare and connect with achievers in the field. For investors, it is a real-world due diligence session of months compressed to an hour and a half.  As a sponsor, it is an opportunity to connect with up and coming innovators and top-level decision makers in the field.

Our theme for the London event is the challenge of health data integration and its implications to medical diagnostics, hospital-based care, remote or home-based care, medical research and healthcare cost reduction.
