Can Technology Revolutionize Women’s Healthcare?

September 27, 2023 @ 3:30 pm - 6:00 pm EDT

The progression of technology is poised to have a significant impact on women’s health.

Technology provides a unique opportunity to bridge gaps in women’s care, particularly in highly stigmatized areas, and can assist in delivering culturally sensitive and tailored care (providing that it’s validated in diverse patient populations). Accordingly, investment in technology for women has soared during the past decade.

As players in the space target new areas within women’s health, they’ll focus not only on developing innovative products but also on opportunities to serve unmet needs for women’s health, improve medical research, and increase education and accessibility to reach a larger consumer base.

Of course, the rise of these solutions also implicates a host of regulatory considerations, such as how companies will ensure the privacy of women’s health data. Further, many new platforms in this arena are still viewed as niche investment opportunities, and funding must catch up significantly compared with other healthcare sectors. These factors can make it challenging for women’s health technology platforms to gain traction and scale up.

Despite these challenges, the women’s healthcare market is getting a long-overdue makeover.

Please join 131 & Counting for a highly informative panel discussion in which they will cover topics such as patient engagement with these technology platforms, garnering funding from the male-dominated venture capital industry, health literacy, women-specific health data, regulatory challenges and more.
