Ideation to Success: A Digital Roadmap Story for Startups
Driven to make the lives of people living with chronic diseases easier, QuiO, a connected therapeutics company, set out to be an industry disrupter by enabling smarter and on-the-go medication monitoring. By using a lean startup approach to create a powerful, user-first solution, QuiO was able to go-to-market faster, gain attention from the market, and win Accenture’s Global HealthTech Innovation Challenge.
In this session, QuiO will share how they embarked on their digital journey and collaborated with local firm TESCHGlobal to create an IoT infrastructure that paired their smart devices with modern technology. In addition, they’ll share lessons learned along the way and how they landed a strategic partnership to take the drug delivery industry into connected therapeutics.

HealthTechMKE: Entrepreneurship for Health Professionals

Health professionals need to be engaged in the decisions made at emerging companies so they can guide this evolution and ensure that future technologies succeed and are focused on patient care. But what if you:
- don't have the time?
- don't have any great ideas?
- think the risks outweigh the benefits?

HealthTechMKE: Innovative Approaches to Addressing Health Disparities
Despite Milwaukee's top-notch healthcare systems and booming healthtech industry, health disparities among Milwaukee County residents are dramatic and persistent. While it is only a piece of the puzzle, how healthcare is accessed and delivered remains vitally important in addressing the challenges associated with health disparities.
This event will approach the problem by identifying the difficulties we have in Milwaukee and hearing from innovators that are providing unique solutions. Through discussion and networking, we hope to determine areas of progress and identify opportunities ready for the next company or entrepreneur to tackle. So come and meet the Milwaukee Healthtech community and be inspired to use innovation to respond to one of Milwaukee's biggest concerns.Free Event! Register Today!
