Asia HealthTech Investment Landscape Q3 YTD 2017 Update

More money invested in Q3 compared to Q2 but less than Q1! The HealthTech scene in Asia is still relatively nascent but, nevertheless, witnessed significant growth in HealthTech investments with $1.2B invested across 127 deals for the first half of 2017 ($2.3B invested in 2016 alone). The third quarter of 2017 may be demonstrating the early signs of a maturing ecosystem with fewer deals and bigger bets.

When Will We Finally Change The Pharma Rep Model in Asia?

One area I challenge my peers quite often with is why in this ‘age of information’, unprecedented levels of scientific understanding, increasing use of formularies, and the growing call for evidence-based medicine, we still see pharmaceutical sales driven primarily by representatives who appeal more on messaging and relationships than hard clinical evidence.

A ‘blockchain' is a form of distributed database (or decentralised ledger) made up of unchangeable, digitally recorded data, packaged as ‘blocks’. Each block of data is stored in a linear chain, and each chain is cryptographically hashed. Every modification to the data generates a new block, while the old is preserved.
