In global health, technology companies cannot afford the “move fast and break things” approach. Over the last seven years, THINKMD has worked methodically to validate its technology and built up its partnerships in 11 countries, upholding the integrity of clinical quality and health data, while creating our own definition of accountability in digital health. Disruptive innovation and learnings have been possible because of implementing partners in lMICs, despite THINKMD being based in the USA. But vulnerabilities in healthcare transcend geographic boundaries; it’s time to bring our lessons home and drive innovation in the US health system.

Purpose and Desired Outcome
The aim is to discuss “global” health and the concept of disruptive innovation in digital health. When it comes to healthcare, it is about life or death, making digital health a space of true accountability to the people it serves. The desired outcome is a discussion around what disruptive innovation needs in order to be successful for all people needing high quality healthcare, no matter where they live.
