The Digital Health Summer Summit San Francisco may be over, but the conversations linger. Common themes throughout were the emphasis on building TRUST, relationships, good business strategies, providing VALUE and OUTCOMES. Many exciting things on the horizon in this high growth area. There is no shortage of interest or need, but a lack of products that deliver on their promises. Opportunities abound for those who want to dive in. Partnerships between private and public sector, entrepreneurs and established businesses and organizations. It will be exciting to see where this leads. As Dr. Aenor Sawyer of UCSF pointed out, the changing demographics will entice us to appeal to the geri-actives. Let’s get creative and innovative in solutions for the future.
Thanks to Robin Raskin for inviting me. Jill Gilbert, you did a phenomenal job even in your glowing state. I look forward to seeing you in Vegas at CES when I have the results of my wearables and presence of mind study to share. In the meantime, keep innovating, sharing, learning and doing with each other!
