Check out the interview with Martin Kelly, HealthXL

What is your elevator pitch?

HealthXL is focused on accelerating the adoption of digital innovation. Our platform currently monitors approximately 50,000 companies’ health systems and academic centres to identify new research, partnership and investment opportunities. We are working with global leaders to build an intelligence platform and a standard for digital health assessment.

How is HealthXL doing? What have been your biggest recent developments?

Each quarter we host invitation-only meetings with our members, including senior execs from firms like Abbott, Bayer, Cleveland Clinic, GE, Guidewell/Florida Blue, J&J, Merck, Novartis, Partners HealthCare, Philips, Roche and SVB to name a few. We just completed our meetings in Silicon Valley and Mumbai – click here for more details.

The amount of data has exploded in every single sector. How do you see the heathcare industry doing in sorting out this challenge?

Finding the right data that you can trust is so important. In this world of ‘fake news’ it is critical that we can believe our data is reliable.

What do you see as digital healthcare’s biggest challenges looking into 2019?

Breaking down silos and helping teams to collaborate to drive innovation and positive health outcomes.

What of those can be achieved/managed in 2019?

We believe that digital health is starting to mature as an industry and we’ll see more collaborations and meaningful partnerships in 2019.

In the tech sector we are talking a lot about AI. What is your take on its role in healthcare?

AI and Big Data have the potential to really transform our industry if we can trust and share the right underlying data
