What’s After Health 2.0? Trends Shaping Health Tech | Indu Subaiya, Health 2.0 & Catalyst Health

By JESSICA DAMASSA, WTF HEALTH

“Renaissance woman” and Catalyst Health President & Senior Advisor for HIMSS, Indu Subaiya, has spent the past 13 years tracking the growth and integration of digital health and health technology into healthcare systems worldwide. So, how have things evolved over time? What’s new and changing? Indu points out some of the differences she’s seeing in the European approach to healthcare’s ‘digital transformation’ (hint: they’re winning at clinician engagement) and explains what startups around the world should be focused on to remain relevant as Big Tech companies infiltrate the space.

Health 2.0 has something important to tell you

Important news about my day job at Health 2.0 from my partner Indu Subaiya and me! You can also see the press release here and watch a video discussion with HIMSS CEO Steve LieberMatthew Holt

Indu and Matthew are excited to announce that after 10 years of convening the Health 2.0 community through our events and programs around the world, our conference company has found a new home and a partner who will help us exponentially expand our reach and impact. Effective immediately, we are joining forces with HIMSS and will be established as a new Health 2.0 business unit within the enterprise that includes HIMSS North America, HIMSS Analytics, HIMSS Media, HIMSS Europe, HIMSS AsiaPacific and the Personal Connected Health Alliance.

Health 2.0 and HIMSS share a single mission, to improve health outcomes by leveraging the best that technology has to offer. While terms change through the years, that common end goal hasn’t and won’t moving forward.

Our integration with HIMSS is a transformative opportunity to bring the knowledge and expertise from Health 2.0’s global network of entrepreneurs, developers and end-users together with that of clinicians, IT professionals, health care executives, policy leaders and other stakeholders to make a sustainable difference.

We are at a critical inflection point in the evolution of the health technology industry. Exciting advances in data science and AI, precision medicine and genomics, sensors and hardware to name just a few, coupled with the increased rate of adoption of digital health technologies by health care providers, payers, life science companies and communities require a level of collaboration like never before.

And yet, start-ups face barriers to access and distribution while large organizations face challenges in vetting and selecting new technology partners. Working with HIMSS, we will be able to create even more vibrant formats for interaction and more efficient mechanisms for innovation to spread throughout the healthcare system.

Countries around the world want to share models and best practices, to import and export health technology innovation while growing their own markets and their market reach globally. Working with HIMSS, we will be able to combine and expand our global footprint to be better ambassadors as well.

Indu will join HIMSS as executive vice president for the newly established Health 2.0 business unit and continue to co-host Health 2.0’s Annual Fall and Wintertech conferences with Matthew, while he will be our globe-trotting ambassador and continue to host and develop our international business.

Since 1961, HIMSS has focused on its vision of improving health and healthcare with the best use of information technology. Now, more than 55 years later, it continues on this path to improve the quality and affordability of, and access to, healthcare.

Health 2.0 was born from a need for consumers to take charge of their health using new technology frameworks that disintermediated access to health information and services. Over the past 10 years the Health 2.0 community has spawned an ecosystem of companies that helped bridge the gap between the institutional world of care delivery. We were bound to meet in the middle.

As with all great partnership journeys, we know this is not an ending, but a beginning.  When it comes to technology, there will always be a new frontier. It’s going to take all of us to explore that frontier together and to translate new ideas into the industry standard. We need both the foundation and the means to continually experiment to make good on our mission to leverage the best technology has to offer in helping us live healthier lives.

Onwards and together,

Indu & Matthew

Indu & Matthew talk Health 2.0 with Lisa & Dave

One of the most insightful and funniest writers in health care is recovering VC Lisa Suennen. With trusty sidekick Dave Shaywitz, she’s been doing Tech Tonics, one of these newly trendy (again) podcasts. And Sunday at Health 2.0 they interviewed my partner Indu Subaiya, and me. Want to know a little more aobut the backstory of Health 2.0? Listen in!

A Life in the Day of an EIR: Health IT Ain’t No Bubble for Venture Capital (…. so apply for the DC to VC Health IT startup showcase)

Everyone is always asking me what it is like being an EIR and why I decided to do it after my 5+ years working on Google Health.  First of all, for those of you who are not familiar with the term – an EIR stands for either Entrepreneur in Residence or Executive in Residence.  In the case of Morgenthaler Ventures, they were looking for a person with extensive experience in the Health IT sector at an executive level. This differs from a more traditional EIR title (entrepreneur in residence) where you are asked to incubate a startup from scratch with some support and resources.  As an Executive in Residence, I work hand in hand with the firm’s partners to author the current health IT investing thesis, map out the industry, source companies that match our areas of interest, and help with diligence. The goal of my EIR term is to find a company that Morgenthaler can invest in and then join that company as part of the executive team. I picked Morgenthaler Ventures because of their track record in health IT (invested in Practice Fusion before Health IT was in vogue) and their leadership in the industry with the creation of the first DC to VC conference.

In its 3rd year, DC to VC was initially started by Rebecca Lynn, IT Partner at Morgenthaler Ventures to bring the venture capital community together with Washington D.C. policymakers.  This year, I am proud to say that I am co-directing the DC to VC event and the health IT startup contest along with Matthew Holt and Indu Subaiya from Health 2.0. The contest will take place on the last day of the 2012 Health 2.0 Annual Fall conference in San Francisco on October 10, 2012.  Online applications open today, June 4, 2012 and stay open until August 3, 2012.
