A New Paradigm in Women's Healthcare

International Conference and Expo on Women And Reproductive Health

Executive Chairman and CEO of FemTec Health

Keynote: J Women’s Health Care

Abstract :

Women’s health is an integral part of society's success. Women represent the cornerstone of a community and often times the family's overall health. The time has come for visionaries within the health and wellness industries to transform and put women at the center of the conversation. According to the New York Times, the global femtech industry generated over $820 million in global revenue and received over $600 million in venture capital investment in 2019. Only 4% of healthcare R&D funding is targeted at women’s health according to Femtech Analytics, while women spend on average 21% more than men on healthcare and make 90% of healthcare decisions. These numbers illustrate both the potential for this market, but also the shortcomings when it comes to women’s healthcare. The starting point is holistic data to really understand a woman's healthcare needs and then smart technology like AI and predictive analytics to translate the data into actionable outcomes. This means clinical research and studies dedicated to women’s bodies and physiology. It means embracing advances in technology to scale personalized healthcare for women at every stage of their life cycle. In this address, I will bring forth new and innovative approaches to women’s health through smart technology that addresses and personalizes both products and services that are not only matched to the unique biology of a woman but also to the stage and state of her health. This personalization is and will be the cornerstone to providing the care that every woman deserves at all life stages. If COVID-19 has taught us anything it’s that healthcare touches every facet of our lives from economic and job security to mental health, education and access to affordable medicine and care. Women are now at the center, not only as they affect the workforce, but as mothers, caregivers, breadwinners and the beating heart of families. The question is not, if we should shift our paradigm, but how quickly we can get it done?
