  • Generating evidence for digital health solutions - Irish startup experiences
    When creating new digital health solutions, one of the most important tasks on the journey to developing a new product or service is to both demonstrate value to patients, clinician-users and investors alike, and perhaps to prove its validity to regulators. However, creating the evidence to prove the value in digital health technologies or the effectiveness of the digital health intervention is difficult. Many questions need to be answered when bringing Digital Health technologies into the lives of patients, such as:– • How can we deploy our technologies and collect data to show effectiveness? • How do we design our data collection studies? • How do we generate evidence? At this meetup, we will hear about the journey of three of Dublin's digital health solutions, followed by a panel discussion: 1) Barry Greene (https://www.linkedin.com/in/brgreene/), Chief Technology Officer, Kinesis Health Technologies. (http://kinesis.ie) 2) Tim Delany (https://www.linkedin.com/in/timdelany/), Business Analyst, S3 Connected Health (http://s3connectedhealth.com/). 3) Niall Rafferty (https://www.linkedin.com/in/nrafferty/), CEO, Medxnote (http://www.medxnote.com/). Health 2.0 Dublin would like to thank the Health and Life Science team at Accenture Centre for Innovation for hosting this event.

  • Where we started, Where we're going...
    Four years ago we started with just a handful of people in the Cellar Bar at the Merrion Hotel. Now, four years on, we're meeting again to discuss where we've been, where we're going and, more importantly, the leadership and who will drive the group in 2017. This is a casual meetup for those interested in having a pint and a chat about what we want to do as a group. We have almost 700 members, all who are doing exciting things, and a current team that is stretched for time. If you're interested in doing more with Health 2.0 Dublin and want to be part of the committee and leadership group, then come along Wednesday. Let's see where we can take this. We kick off at 7pm. See you there! The Health 2.0|Dublin Team

  • Opinionated: What's wrong with Health and Healthcare
    What's wrong with health and healthcare? Ask many people and you're likely to get a lot of answers. It costs too much, people are getting sicker, it's inefficient, there's too much red tape. The list could go on and on. But with health and technology, we're all about solutions. Since we started H2D almost four years ago, we've had a lot of meetups. Many on new technologies and new ideas. Some on funding, pitches or accelerator type programmes. But how many have we had that focused on problems? According to Mitchell Harper, entrepreneur, investor and creator of the simple framework (an idea that's used to validate startup ideas), "If your startup failed, it’s because it didn’t solve a tier 1 problem for a large enough audience." In his simple framework, the first two steps (out of 5 total) have to do with understanding the problem. In this meetup I'd like to talk about problems. I've been here since H2D started almost four years ago and, as its my last meetup on the organising committee, I have a few observations and things to say. Please join me and others on Wednesday, 14th September, where we can discuss (in a casual atmosphere) some of the problems in health and healthcare and maybe generate new ideas for how to move forward -- in Health 2.0|Dublin and also in health technology. It will be a time for me to see you and thank you -- for your help in building this organisation -- and I want to give you all my best wishes for the future. Hope to see you then. Teri Agenda 6pm Welcome - Teri Morris Speakers 6.05pm - 6.35pm Teri Morris, founder Health 2.0|Dublin - Are we addressing the real problems? Billions go into healthcare every year and yet problems in health and healthcare seem to grow. Here's one perspective. 6.40pm - 7pm Food Marble (https://twitter.com/FoodMarble), the world's first personalised digestive tracker Every body is unique. Everybody's response to food is unique. If you're suffering from digestive discomfort, then Food Marble is here to help. Pre-orders started only last Tuesday. They're solving a huge problem and have already gotten a huge response. Aonghus tells us more. This is definitely one to watch. 7pm - 7.20pm Donal McConnell, founder Pharmabuddy (https://twitter.com/PharmaBuddyIRE), an online pharmacist exclusive platform that allows for better peer to peer collaboration within the pharmacist profession. Launched in May, Pharmabuddy now has a community of 1200 pharmacists in only four months. Come listen to Donal and hear about the Pharmabuddy story. 7.25pm - 7.45pm Roundtable Discussion and Q&A -- time for you to join in! 7.45pm Health 2.0|Dublin Call for Volunteers - Teri 7.50pm Closing Remarks/Networking
