What does Health City do?
We help create the collaborative environment to enable innovators to co-develop, validate, adopt and showcase the capabilities in our region. We do this by:
Engaging with innovators addressing key local health challenges (e.g. diabetes, obesity, seniors’ frailty, opioid addiction, youth mental health). We pair these initiatives with novel capabilities from industry – including smaller local companies, large multinationals and non-traditional health companies – to co-develop solutions. Since these challenges have global relevance, solutions built here can be exported globally. And our SMEs can partner with larger multinationals to co-market their products and services internationally.
Being an honest broker and identifying what all parties can bring to the table, including relationships, expertise, global reach, investment, innovation or policy influence. We de-risk the environment and accelerate our innovators’ solutions.
Building a platform to analyze multiple data sets to generate evidence. We’re creating a platform that uses advanced tools like artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze multiple sources of data. We can use this data to generate evidence for the marketability of health innovations and to predict future innovation & investments that would impact the health of citizens in our region and beyond.
We strive to serve as an example of how to transform health to meet the evolving needs of our populace and build a stronger economy.
