Dreamit HealthTech, now in its fifth year, has worked with startups such as Redox, Eko, Protenus, Oncora Medical, Biomeme, Keriton, Lia Diagnostics, and Tissue Analytics, which have all emerged as leaders in their respective fields.
On June 8th, 2018, the team at Dreamit HealthTech hosted a showcase event for its Spring 2018 cohort.
To kick off the event, Dreamit HealthTech Managing Director Adam Dakin hosted a fireside chat with Roy Rosin, Chief Innovation Officer at Penn Medicine, and Brian Lobley, President of Commercial and Consumer Markets at Independence Blue Cross.
Topics of conversation during the wide-ranging discussion included:
How Penn Medicine and Independence Blue Cross have collaborated to bring innovative products like TowerView Health to market.
How readmission warranties at Penn Medicine have reduced patient readmissions for conditions like heart failure and COPD by 40% - 50%.
The fact that care is extending beyond the traditional hospital setting, which creates an opportunity for innovative new projects such as the collaboration between Independence Blue Cross and Comcast.
How technology is enabling high-touch, personalized care delivery, which has become the gold standard of care in the US.
During the main event, participants in the most recent Dreamit cohort pitched their solutions and connected with investors, executives, and other founders from the healthcare community in the greater Philadelphia region.
