I'm excited to share an upcoming digital health event organized by Ran Ma and the Silicon Vikings -- a 20,000+ person network supporting Nordic entrepreneurship.
Per the event page:
"The Nordic region has a unique and progressive healthcare system, making it the perfect breeding ground for innovative technological solutions in healthcare. With aging global population, exploding healthcare costs and a rise in chronic conditions, the modern healthcare system has been stretched to capacity and is ripe for disruption. Our event not only explores what's next in digital health but also juxtaposes the disadvantages/advantages of doing business in Scandinavia vs. USA. Each of our expert panelists are shifting the paradigms in healthcare in a different way."
This event will feature a panelist discussion comprised of the following digital health experts:
• Ran Ma - Moderator of the event and Co-Founder/CEO of Siren IVS (http://siren.care/), a smart textile digital health startup
• Alexander Börve - Founder and CEO of iDoc24 (http://www.idoc24.com/), a company leveraging smartphones to provide on-demand dermatology advice
• Eythor Bender - Founder and CEO of UNYQ (http://www.unyq.com/), a company using 3D printing to bring personalization and fashion to the prosthetic and orthotic industry
• Pierre Theodore - A UCSF surgeon (http://cancer.ucsf.edu/people/profiles/theodore_pierre.3685)involved in several digital and global health projects aimed at improving resource management and standards of care in the developing world
• Ari Tulla - Co-Founder and CEO of BetterDoctor (http://www.betterdoctor.com), a comprehensive doctor search tool bringing transparency to healthcare
• Bonnie Zell - Co-Founder and Chief Quality Officer at Icebreaker Health (http://icebreakerhealth.com/), a company building a next-generation telemedicine platform to deliver improved healthcare access and quality while reducing costs
