An ecosystem for open innovation.
Health Futures is an ecosystem for open innovation
We believe that the future of health care systems needs to be patient centered and community-based. Moving beyond the transfer of technology, future health care requires new models of distributed care and health financing. To ignite and catalyze this transformation only partnerships and open innovation can be an effective response to the complexity of health care innovation needed to answer to combat the health care issues of our time.
Health Futures offers a regional ecosystem that weaves together startups, investors, industry, service providers, public institutions, academia. Through partnerships we take advantage of synergies that lead to impactful research and solutions allowing health care for everyone.
We focus on three drivers for healthcare transformation: new service delivery models, innovative healthcare financing, and technology. We leverage our resources – insights, mentors, partners and startups – to accelerate transformation around our therapeutic focus areas: cancer, infectious diseases, brain & frailty, and cardiometabolic health.
We work closely with our partners and collaborators to identify synergies and bring innovative ideas, from conceptual to concrete, and to fruition in a systematic manner. We study best practices globally to stay on the forefront of new knowledge. We work with our partners to explore innovations that can scale, and we facilitate the coalition building process by providing events and networking opportunities.
In addition to Singapore, the Health Futures Network was rolled out in China with locations in Shanghai and Beijing. Through the ACCESS Health offices in Delhi and Hyderabad the Health Futures network covers most of Southeast Asia and beyond.
