ANDHealth is seeking input from digital health innovators and companies to identify gaps, challenges and opportunities in digital health commercialisation. Australian Digital Health companies are invited to participate in a short, 5-10 minute survey, which closes 30 September 2019.
Alongside MTPConnect, ANDHealth is conducting its survey to better understand how well digital health companies are supported in the Australian ecosystem, and to provide a snapshot of the digital health landscape in Australia.
ANDHealth’s Digital Health: Creating a New Growth Industry for Australia report states that the global digital health market is expected to reach US$206 billion by 2020, driven particularly by the mobile and wireless health market. Australia is considered a global leader in health and medical research, its citizens are early adopters of new technology, and it has an abundance of innovative ideas. Yet it must continue to ensure that it has the optimal environment required to create, build and nurture commercially viable and resilient fast-growth companies in emerging sectors.
Australia has the opportunity to develop an internationally competitive digital health industry sector, which would complement and leverage our traditionally strong biopharmaceutical and medical device sectors.
ANDHealth was established to transform the digital health sector in Australia, and as Australia’s only dedicated provider of digital health commercialisation support. ANDHealth is a not-for-profit company that was established in 2017 by a consortium of industry partners, including AusBiotech.
