3-KEY ROLES FOR A PLATFORM
4 of 26
As we covered in Insight#3, we believe digital platforms are an inevitable part of the H.W.B.* landscape.
In our view, these platforms will be expected to fulfill three key roles:
1. Connect apps / services with people with health jobs to do
2. Remove technology friction
3. Simplify access to data which is fragmented into silos across the H.W.B. space.
In this episode, Dr. Byrne unpacks some of the thinking behind the three key roles, and shares his perspective on why it’s important for health innovators to have this on their radar.
