    Joining students with start ups in the health-tech sector - Sumeet Charan and Alexis Schteinman

    Joining students with start ups in the health-tech sector - Sumeet Charan and Alexis Schteinman

    Sumeet Charan and Alexis Schteinman are the Vice Presidents Industry for 2021 and 2020 respectively at the Society of Medical Innovation (SOMI). SOMI is a student-led society at the University of New South Wales (UNSW) promoting innovation in the med-tech sector and inspiring students to not wait for graduation before seeking to make a difference.

    In this episode, they share how SOMI came about and discuss how SOMI is connecting current students with industry insiders. They also share how this has proven to be mutually beneficial, giving real-world, invaluable experience whilst providing lower-cost solutions for businesses.

     

    Key takeaways:
    The SOMI Technology Consulting Program gives students a chance to learn from experienced networks whilst offering companies an opportunity to expand the marketing reach, employee and business network with emerging med-tech students.
    Not every idea needs to be birthed into a startup. There are established businesses within healthcare that can see problems or opportunities. But given the size, scale or existing processes, they find it hard to innovate or attempt new approaches to med-tech.
    SOMI’s Technology Consulting Program enables the industry an opportunity to work with students and empower the students to consult or develop prototypes. This gives real-world experience for students, whilst offering the industry lower-cost approaches to undertake R&D or experiment with solutions to known problems.

    The app that safeguards lone healthcare workers - Hays Bailey

    The app that safeguards lone healthcare workers - Hays Bailey

    Hays Bailey is Founder & CEO at SHEQSY, a cloud-based lone worker health and safety platform that enables organisations to visualise, monitor and track employee activity in real-time. It helps generate alerts for overstays, missing check-ins or situations that have caused duress.

    In this episode, Hays walks through the user experience from a health professional's point of view, a case or team manager's point of view and the business's point of view. He talks about how SHEQSY is an easy way to ensure employee quality, safeguarding, audit and compliance, and business reporting.

     

    Key takeaways:
    Through Hays’ experience working with monitoring solutions for businesses, he realised that a substantial number of his customers were healthcare providers who were increasingly needing to track and monitor their team members when attending locations alone.
    SHEQSY was born to offer a real-time location and countdown timer that could be used by healthcare providers to ensure that team members felt safe and were offered support in the event of any unexpected issues arising whilst they are on the road attending client sites.
    With SHEQSY, if any of the expected activities are not met, then you or your team manager will be proactively notified and escalated to ensure that an in-the-field team member is safe and well.

    Agile healthcare...measuring molecules in real-time - Peter Vranes

    Agile healthcare...measuring molecules in real-time - Peter Vranes

    Peter Vranes is a Co-founder of Nutromics, an Australian med-tech company providing continuous, real-time molecular monitoring using a smart patch biosensor platform. In this episode, Peter shares his story from having already built and exited a successful cosmeceutical brand and how that led to meeting his co-founder to build Nutromics. He also talks about how that experience led to them participating in a med-tech accelerator, and their journey through capital raising and proof of concepts.

     

    Key takeaways:
    Conventional molecular tests and monitoring leaves big gaps in terms of the information needed to support decision making (especially where monitoring of fast-moving molecular targets is needed).
    Nutromics has developed a one patch platform that can be adapted to many applications and can ensure, continuously and in real-time, that a patient is receiving a dose at the right time and level to stay within the therapeutic range.
    The molecular sensing technology has a microneedle array platform and an aptamer sensor platform that promises flexibility for this Smart Patch to be used in many different therapeutic contexts.

    Health tech and digital health start-up establishment & acceleration - Dina Titkova & Vesna Todorovski

    Health tech and digital health start-up establishment & acceleration - Dina Titkova & Vesna Todorovski

    Today’s guests are Dina Titkova (the Health 10x Program Manager at the University of New South Wales) and Vesna Todorovski (the Global HealthTech & Innovation Program Manager at The George Institute for Global Health).

    In this episode, Dina and Vesna share their respective journeys which led them to be involved in both designing and delivering the Health 10x Program within the University of New South Wales Founders Program. And they describe how the program works to help establish or accelerate the business growth of healthtech and digital health start-ups.

     

    Key takeaways:
    The Health 10x Program supports Australian innovators to develop affordable and scalable health solutions for global health challenges, with a focus on addressing the rising burden of non-communicable diseases and injury in under-resourced settings.
    The George Institute for Global Health is an independent medical research institute, with a focus on globally available, affordable and accessible healthcare. Most of their research programmes are around non-communicable and chronic disease and injury because these are the largest disease burdens globally and the largest killers in Australia.
    When discussing modernising healthcare, it’s necessary to consider the needs of healthcare professionals to balance out the growing demand for healthcare. A healthcare system that encourages a ‘Digital Health Nomad’ model might be a key cultural change to move healthcare to the next level.

    Human Activity Recognition in aged care - Dr Harro Stokman

    Human Activity Recognition in aged care - Dr Harro Stokman

    Dr Harro Stokman is the Founder & CEO of Kepler Vision Technologies, a company providing human activity recognition software to improve the well being of humans at night. Harro comes from a deep background in technology and after selling a successful technology business, decided to focus on an innovative use of AI and Machine Learning in the areas of human activity recognition. In this discussion, Harro explains what human activity recognition is, the type of healthtech involved and how it adds value in modern healthcare settings.

     

    Key takeaways:
    Kepler Vision has optimised their Human Activity Recognition based on real-world settings in Aged Care using pre-existing CCTV cameras fed through Kepler Vision’s software.
    ‘Night Nurse’ programs serve as an advanced domotic system that keeps patients safe and reduces the stress and workload of staff in the elderly care space.
    If there is help needed, the nurse receives a message. Nurses can also look into automatically generated reports about the night rest of the clients, providing them with valuable information to help with care.

    Reimagining Workforce Healthcare & Digital Osteopathy - Heath Williams

    Reimagining Workforce Healthcare & Digital Osteopathy - Heath Williams

    Heath Williams is an osteopath who frequently lectures on topics such as exercise rehabilitation, ergonomics and clinical education. He’s also the director of Corporate Work Health Australia, a provider of corporate health, safety and wellness advice. In this episode, Heath and Yianni focus on what workplace health means and what the responsibilities of an employer are in a changing workplace landscape. Heath also shares his vision of an ideal workplace.

     

    Key takeaways:
    Workplace injuries are a massive nationwide problem for Australia, costing more than $61 billion annually.
    Given workplace injuries are a problem for Australia, it's just a matter of time before most employers transcend regulatory compliance and start to proactively support employee health and wellness.
    Given that the definition of a ‘workplace’ is rapidly expanding and now covers diverse and remote working environments, it can be challenging to know where employers responsibilities for their workers’ safety begins and ends.
