How do you go from the post room at Virgin Records to becoming a healthtech entrepreneur? How does watching iTunes disrupting the music industry prepare you to disrupt healthcare? In healthtech, why is it so important to delight users with a great experience? All these answered and more on this week's episode where James is joined by Elliot Engers, founder and CEO of Infinity Health, a London-based start-up that has developed a suite of digital tools to improve workflow and task management in healthcare.
Infinity Health was founded at the end of 2013 by Elliott and his cofounder, Dr Adam Benton. Elliot has an awesome background, coming from the music industry and watching iTunes disrupt the sector and he's now taken that learning into healthtech and is an expert in managing software products and services. In 2014 the company won a proof of concept grant from Innovate UK to develop digital tools for handover and task management. Over the years this has developed into Infinity Health, a digital platform that provides collaboration and task management for teams at the point-of-care. This takes the form of a suite of digital tools that collect and integrate data, for example patient lists and medical data, alongside tools to communicate this information such as notifications, instant messaging and activity feeds.
