Hello Tomorrow BootUp

Digitization, technological enablement, and automation are affecting industries today in profound ways. Healthcare is no exception. The paradigm of healthcare is changing and is poised for a big leap forward. Healthcare and drug Innovation have come into sharp focus as never before. The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated that healthcare organizations can become more resilient, agile, and innovative through digitally-enabled business models with data at the core. The pandemic added urgency and accelerated the process of change for healthcare to become more digitally enabled.

Various reforms launched before and during the pandemic, such as National Health Digital Mission (NDHM), Teleconsulting guidelines combined with burgeoning health tech start-up ecosystem enabled by innovation have evolved to make the healthcare journey better for Indian population.

Thus, “new normal” in healthcare ecosystem will be about how healthcare industry will innovate in the coming decade and what it means for both patients and healthcare providers. As more and more stakeholders will be involved and collaborate with the objective of improving the healthcare experience, they will have to “unlock the power of data”. There will be integration between the physical and the virtual to offer convenient, transparent, personal, and predictive health experience of the future.

Keeping this in mind, GSK and PadUp Ventures are launching an interactive, blended, mentoring & educational bootcamp for Healthcare Startups, called the Hello Tomorrow BootUp.
