Why Digital Health?

Startup pirates 314 9b8052b35e27cc4abf01

The technological advances evidenced in recent years have significantly modified health care processes, with a growing trend. MarketsandMarkets indicates that the digital health market will grow about 13.5% between the period from 2015 to 2020. Indeed, nowadays, with the great data storage capabilities achieved with the clouds and even on computers themselves, it is already possible to easily access and analyze through interactive softwares the patient's health history. Therefore, the evolution of a disease as well as quantitative perception of the effects of a given treatment can be better understood. Also with the processing capabilities achieved today, it is possible that these same results are delivered in a very short time in a very reliable way, thus saving time and attention to health professionals. Finally, the processes evidenced in new non-invasive diagnostic devices and small portable monitoring systems may be another examples of this emerging vogue of digital health innovation.

With the purpose to encourage and support brilliant business ideas in the health area,  EMBS Portugal organizes a week of entrepreneurship between 9 and 16 September dedicated to the acceleration of ideas in the area mentioned above. This initiative has the financial support of Scale UP and Câmara Municipal do Porto. You will have moments of fun, learning through workshops / lectures, mentoring sessions, work sessions and the final pitch where you can be part of the winning team. Participate with us in Startup Pirates Porto - Digital Health Edition.

Be brave! Be crazy! Be a pirate!
