The Healthtech Challenge Ph is a search for healthtech innovations or tech-based solutions that cover any stage of the healthcare process - from awareness, diagnosis, treatment, tracking and monitoring.
This one-day event at the Asian Institute of Management, on October 4, 2017, aims to acknowledge local solutions that could improve access to Universal Healthcare Coverage for Filipinos.
HealthTech Challenge Ph is presented by the Embassy of Switzerland in the Philippines in cooperation with the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) and TechTalks.ph, to commemorate the 60 year anniversary of the Switzerland Philippines government relations. As a global leader in providing Universal Health Coverage to its citizens, Switzerland supports all initiatives to make UHC happen in the Philippines. While it may be a long road to UHC in the Philippines, the HealthTech Challenge (HTC) is an opportunity to showcase existing solutions that can be used to improve healthcare today.
Starting out as a platform for electronic medical records for dentists in 2013, Medix.Ph has long since moved into the space of community clinics, ophthalmology, and dermatology. It was selected as one of the eight finalists out of 31 entries to pitch and demo on October 4, 2017.
Medix.ph was interestingly co-founded by two non-healthcare professionals. Managing Director, Lloyd Tronco, brings with him the experience drawn from a career in advertising and media, being an alumnus of McCann-Erickson Philippines. Director of Technology, Marc Medina, has solid experience in technology and systems design having built a variety of tech solutions for non-health industries. The company, Medix Digital Solutions, Inc. is a portfolio company of Kickstart Ventures, and was also named as one of the Top 40 Startups in the Philippines by Inc. Southeast Asia.
