#HIMSS18: Where the brightest mind in healthcare meet !! by @ tejasvdeshmukh

Pinksocks HIMSS

With more than 100+ meetings, exploring innovation, healthcare use cases and technologies defines a whole new equation of healthcare. It’s been over 3 weeks post HIMSS18 in Las Vegas; I am almost done with all my follow-ups and before getting caught up with ATA18 preparation, allow me to share my experience!

Known as the Mecca of Healthcare, HIMSS is a platform to explore innovation, meet thought leaders, network and partner. That said it is easy to get lost, loose orientation and miss out on meetings, when you are dealing with 40k+ attendees and 1000+ exhibitors. It is overwhelming the moment you enter Sand Expo and see HIMSS banners all over the place.
The Pinksocks meet-up that took place on the March 5th at Money Play Restro was filled with the most exuberant people. Nick Adkins has taken an initiative to consolidate all Healthcare professionals, who are determined to disrupt the industry with innovation. The HIMSS Social Media Ambassadors are part of this group and real meaningful exchange of information happened at the meet-up.
Disrupting technologies + Digital transformation = Better Patient Care
Let’s take a look at the trending topics at HIMSS18 that promise Better Patient Care:
  • Disrupting technologies  
    • Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Big Data
    • Blockchain
  • Digital transformation
    • Mobility and Cloud
    • Wearable and IoT
    • Consumerism
  • Telehealth (From Synchronous to Asynchronous model)
Healthcare companies have finally realized the potential of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning in addition to Big Data. The ability to perform complex predictions in a blink of a second will result in advanced decision support, chat bots resulting in real time efficient care delivery system. From Ayasdi to Google Deep Minds, everyone is set to disrupt the traditional healthcare with super-efficient ecosystem.        


  • Blockchain
It is another technology having tremendous potential to transform health care, shifting the patient at the core of ecosystem, coupled by enhanced data security, privacy, and interoperability.Blockchain will provide a new benchmark for interoperability by enhancing secure and efficient health data exchange. While it is not going to address all the healthcare challenges, it does provide a sense of confidence to explore, invest and test its actual potentials in Healthcare. PokitDok, Health Wizz and Hyperledger are amongst few to watch.
  • Mobility and Cloud
It is estimated that by end of 2018, 65% of healthcare interaction between patient and providers will occur using smart phone devices. 80% of doctors are already using one or other medical app to engage with patients.
Cloud is further transforming the way providers deliver quality and cost effective healthcare services. Adoption on cloud strategy significantly reduces infrastructure and administrative cost, thus providing relief from the ever growing pressure of cost reduction.
On one hand patient are demanding instant quality healthcare services and on the other hand government is pushing on use of common standards further monitoring the quality stringently. This complicates the matter further with existing infrastructure and legacy systems. Providers are gearing up to address the increased demand and support 24/7, access to top-quality healthcare, and adopting cloud strategy. Cloud and mobile access is technological reason for the actual consumerism.
Few of the innovators to watch in this space are CloudMine and AlphaSoftware
  • Wearable and IoT
Wearable and IoT has taken the healthcare out of hospitals, and into our homes. Healthcare at home is a win-win for all patients, providers and insurance. Remote monitoring coupled with video collaboration platforms have innovated the space with low cost high quality patient care. Innovative startups like Care Innovation backed by large giants like Intel, Google are making lot of noise in this space.
  • Consumerism in healthcare
Transformation of digital landscape, has led to serious disruption, patients of 21st century are experiencing empowerment. As we unlock the barriers of EHR for better access and quality, consumer satisfaction increases.
Patients can now have similar experiences to retail and shop for best value products based upon their needs. For example, someone with chronic illness, injuries, wrong procedure, and misguided surgeries can get expert advice from companies like Best DoctorsSecond Opinion ExpertsAmino for as low as $300. Ability for patients to make best choices in terms of treatment, procedures with right information, is going to be a blessing. And imagine how much cost health insurance companies are going to save!
  • Diving into telehealth

While Telehealth has been around for decades, yet the real potential has been unlocked just few years back. Federal backup, technological advancement and infrastructure maturity has helped it gain the momentum. Today’s telehealth products are a combination of video and specific use case catering to diverse areas, from Behavioral health to Physiotherapy and so on.
While big players like AmericanWell, Teladoc and other continue to dominate the space. Small players like CloudbreakZipnosis, and Avera with specific requirements are making lot of noise.

Telehealth has demonstrated over and over the improved outcomes with minimal cost. The new age products are equipped with advanced analytics, addressed reimbursement and legislative concerns. The use of advanced technologies like AI and ML on top of telehealth component will be soon gaining momentum to further enhance patient experience and optimize healthcare cost.

It was my 3rd consecutive time to attend HIMSS and every time one has so much to learn. You can digest as per your appetite; I am a Healthcare Professional turned into technologist, and was really amazed to see innovation all around me. All this experience gathered is shared with the clients for whom we build products, it gives them an insight on where the industry is heading.

Key Highlights

Gene editing (CRISPR technology) has lots of potential in this fourth industrial revolution era and policy is being framed with Indian Council for Medical Research (ICMR) and Department of Biotechnology (DBT), to enable Indian innovators to stay ahead of the curve and innovate in the space of genomics – Dr. Vijay Chandru

Government of Karnataka was the first state to come up with a biotechnology policy (circa. 1999) and last month released the third updated version of the policy. Gov. of Kar is focussed towards creating clusters for innovation in healthcare (Bangalore Bio innovation Centre, IBAB); deploy funds for early/ growth stage start-ups via their Idea2PoC and Elevate funding programs; create quality human resource personnel (Bioinformatics graduate students from IBAB centre are in global demand for their skills). Government is also focusing on creating new clusters of innovation across the state – Hubli / Dharwad Agri-Tech cluster, Mangalore Marine Biotech cluster being some of the many to be set up. – Dr. Jagadish Mittur

3D Printing in Healthcare is a 3 Billion Dollar opportunity. GE is focused on utilising the power of additive manufacturing (3D Printing) to create affordable healthcare devices. Work with certifying aerospace grade parts similar to what needs to be done by medical sector to certify medical grade implants. Various advantages of using additive manufactured in designing medical grade implants, equipment and lab testing tools (3D Bioprinting). Solutions to cater to needs of India’s large diabetic population can come from 3D Printing. – Dr. Dheepa Srinivasan

Inspired by the Aravind Eye Hospital chain, Forus Healthcare set forth on their journey in 2010 to develop an affordable eye screening device with the goal to eradicate avoidable blindness. Their key product is 3nethra. Forus has sold products in 26+ countries and truly represents the Make in India for the World dream of our country’s Prime Minister. Ecosystem was supportive to provide inputs and collaboration, when they started off. Challenged faces along the way to building a global product company include lack of support from government run regulatory bodies, slow time from prototype to product. 
– Mr. K Chandrasekhar

Private VC firms already working with government to help their portfolio start-ups tackle various on ground challenges and to deploy technology to improve government efficiency in fields ranging from agriculture to IT. Most VC funds have a shorter life cycle than a deep tech focused life sciences company that is looking at 10-year plus gestation period. This requires exploring other routes for VCs to be able to work better with startups in this space with special structures, incentives and better liquidity through proposed SME exchanges. VC community will continue to better engage with the healthcare ecosystem with the goal of supporting novel Make in India Healthcare companies. – Mr. Anurag Ramdasan
