THE DIGITAL HEALTH STACK
(and 26 key insights for health innovators)

We recently completed a 6-month project, exploring the forces of disruption in digital health. The goal was to see the forces through a fresh lens. We did a deep-dive with many (15) promising start-ups & innovators in the space, and the experience had a profound impact on our foundational thinking about how the digitization process is most likely to unfold in the health space.  It was a bit like drinking from a fire hose of insights, and attempted to capture the key learnings in a recent book for health innovators and have also released a series of short videos (one for each of the edge-insight shared in the book).

This is the first video in the series. In it, Dr. Brendan Byrne (Chief innovation Officer for TELUS Health) shares the backstory on the project and unpacks the thinking behind the DIGITAL HEALTH STACK... a key concept for anyone developing innovative apps & services for health.
