PLATFORMS NEED DATA

5 of 26

As a result of our exposure to the foundational thinking of so many start-ups and edge-innovators in health, we have come to believe that the ability to federate data will be one of the most critical competencies for digital platforms in the H.W.B. space.

In this episode, Dr. Byrne unpacks the notion of data-federation, explains why we believe it’s important for H.W.B. platforms, and shares his perspective on why this is an important insight for health innovators to have on their radar.

WHY EDGE-INSIGHTS MATTER

EDGE-INSIGHTS are unique and in our view, critically important for health organizations, not because they are radically new, but because they provide a glimpse into the foundational thinking of the very group that aims to bring disruptive innovation to the health space. It’s a genuinely fresh perspective, well worth tapping into if you have an interest in innovation in health.
