What we do:
Igniting Health is a website/blog that inspires Innovation in Healthcare. The blog is targeted at health care industry workers. We want the whole industry to have more knowledge about the inspiring NEW technology, NEW research and PIONEERING work being done. Our mission is to inspire MORE innovation in healthcare by sharing the new and groundbreaking stuff that other people are doing in healthcare. In Australia we are quite a different healthcare system so we end up being quite disconnected from the rest of the world. We aim to change that.
The blog will become an important part of Australia healthcare media that is specifically about INNOVATION, SIMPLE DESIGN, BETTER PATIENT OUTCOMES.
There will be a number of sections:
• Health Technology- we showcase new health technology, apps, devices from around the world. Specificallt silicon valley.
• Change Makers- we showcase PEOPLE that are out their leading in their area of health and DOING THINGS DIFFERENTLY
• Frontline – A section of relevant stories and articles working in healthcare providing topical stories that are pertinent for different sections of healthcare – e.g. articles on transitioning to new jobs at the start of the year
• Research/Trend/Future Predictions- We will have a section dedicated to the trends, where other companies are moving and what people are predicting will happen
• Grand Challenges- Like the Gates Foundation put up Grand Challenges… we would like to be able to showcase any competitions and challenges offering prize money for new health innovation
