What Health-tech startups can do to Put Patients First !

  1. 1. Putting Patients First – The role of Digital Health
  2. 2. Where are the healthcare startup success stories ? • No Olas and Flipkarts in the digital health world so far • Practo has been richly funded, but where’s the ROI for the investors ? • Or for the patients and doctors ? • No change in quality of medical care
  3. 3. Why health-tech startups fail so often • Techies in search of a problem to solve • No doctors on their team • Not enough understanding of unmet clinical needs • Want doctors to change their behaviour and workflow • Treat doctors as dinosaurs
  4. 4. Hope, hype and harm • Engineers fall In love with the newest shiny new object • Doctors have burned their fingers in the past – don’t trust engineers • Think they don’t understand anything about patient care
  5. 5. Doctor vs Engineer Bridge the gap ! • Doctors are conservative – if it’s not broken, why fix it ? Cannot afford to experiment with our patients ! • Engineers want to break stuff and put it apart again - but not at the expense of patients !
  6. 6. The promise of digital health startups • Healthcare is broken • Startups can improve existing diagnostic, treatment, and monitoring processes • Help healthcare become more accessible, available, affordable, accurate, and personalized

Why doctors make good angel investors • Empathy ( as a clinical skill) • Domain expertise in healthcare • Brand ambassador and evangelist • Lots of good will in the community • Doctors in private practice are entrepreneurs too • Become a better doctor too because your business sense improves
  24. 24. Why doctors find it hard to become entrepreneurs • Not good at being team players – want to be captain of the ship • Not taught to tinker – just learn to cram facts • Few role models to emulate • Find it safer to be conventional and to start a clinic • Lost opportunities !
  25. 25. Ideas, Implementation and Funding • Ideas are a dime a dozen. Don’t fall in love with your ideas – most are bad ! • Generate lots of ideas ! This improves your chances of stumbling on the right one • Don’t worry anyone will steal your ideas. Share them and ask for criticism, so you can polish them ! • Passion is necessary but not sufficient
  26. 26. The doctor as entrepreneur • Be willing to take calculated risks • Be prepared for failure • Learn to be resilient • Ask your patients for help ! • Can be a great journey - will teach you a lot about yourself – and about the world !
