Why study Leading Health Tech Innovation?
Discover the path to successful digital health innovation.

Healthcare data can revolutionize how we think of every part of the healthcare ecosystem. Once the domain of niche consumer products like Jawbone and Fitbit, digital health is now disrupting the healthcare industry by creating new value using wearables and patient engagement data.

Investments in corporate innovation and startups are outpacing previous years, as investors and healthcare companies expect innovation to come from areas such as data interoperability, mental health and personalized care. According to Global Market Insights Inc., the worldwide digital health market is projected to hit $504.4B by 2025.

In light of this opportunity, the Leading Health Tech Innovation course was developed to provide a comprehensive guide to structuring a successful health tech product, service or venture.

This course is not just for entrepreneurs or those who join startups in the Health Tech space, it is also for those inventing new products and services within medium and large Healthcare companies looking to embrace the transformative power of AI-wearables and machine learning.
"AI and new technologies such as wearables and mobile devices are revolutionizing healthcare. This course will help you learn how to create a product, service or business that can bring better health into people's lives, helping shape the future we all want to see."
