ACCESS Health established the Pinoy Health Innovations Project in the Philippines. The project brings together healthcare providers, customers, and technology experts to explore some of the most pressing challenges in healthcare in the Philippines and to develop innovative technology solutions.
Many Filipino technology entrepreneurs would like their skills to address challenges of healthcare delivery but have limited access to relevant knowledge. ACCESS Health Philippines works with software developers and designers to match entrepreneurs with opportunity. The Pinoy Health Innovations Project brings together healthcare providers, customers, and technical experts from around the Philippines to develop technology solutions to healthcare problems.
The Pinoy Health Innovations Project has three components:
The Pinoy Health Innovations Forums introduce participants to a range of current health challenges subject to technical solutions.
The Health Innovations Business Encounter exposes participants to the concepts of impact investment and expansion strategies.
The Social Innovation Camp matches team mentors with health innovators to assist in the development of detailed business models. The participants will receive ongoing mentoring support to assist in the launch of the new venture.
Our partners for this project are the Asian Institute of Management, ASSIST Asia, the Cebu Technology Business Incubator, Information and Communications Technology Davao, Davao Doctors College, Globe Telecom, Smart Communications/IdeaSpace Foundation, and the University of the Philippines-Cebu.
