Description

The digital health start-up sector was not very international at the outset. Various factors kept many companies’ perspectives national, whether because healthcare practices were seen to be too local, or national and international regulations too great a barrier to entry. This has been changing in recent years, as some digital health companies have expanded beyond their borders. We’ve put together a diverse and exciting panel of people experienced with the issues of globalization, to interact with participants. 

Here are some of the questions they’ll be addressing: 
Is international expansion an exception or part of a rising trend in digital health? 
Which services are priority candidates for internationalization? 
How are digital health companies raising funds for operations beyond their original borders? 
At what stage of their operation should the expansion begin? 

The panel will include: 

  • Denise Silber, an American in Paris, eHealth pioneer, president of Basil Strategies, and founder of Doctors 2.0 & You, the first patient-included international digital health conference in Europe 
  • Dr. Frank Antwerpes, from Germany, originally a dentist, founder of both DocCheck, Europe’s largest online health professional community and of Guano, European seed-fund and network 
  • Michael J Seres, from the UK, ePatient, blogger, founder of 11 Health, the award-winning connected health start-up for ostomy care, and Stanford Medicine X entrepreneur in residence 
  • Ronan Le Quere, from France, managing director of Interaction Healthcare and driving global expansion for the MedicActiV digital clinical case simulation platform. 

I was diagnosed aged 12 with the incurable bowel condition
Crohn's Disease. In late 2011 I became the 11th person to undergo a small
bowel transplant in the UK at The Churchill Hospital in Oxford. 

I started blogging about his journey through Bowel Transplant and my blog "beingapatient" has over 95,000 followers. I use social media to develop global
on line peer to peer communities covering over 20,000 patients. I am also privileged to develop social media strategies around patient engagement. My passion is mentoring patients and
their families and I am a published author & professional speaker. 

I have become the patient lead for #NHSSM, a facilitator for Centre for Patient Leadership
& digital strategy advisor to The Oxford Transplant Foundation where I
helped implement the first skype clinics. I am also founder of health tech start up
11Health.
