I act as a medical advisor & strategy consultant to health technology companies.
I advise and consult for health technology companies (hardware, software, mobile, wearable, biotech, genomics) in the areas of clinical strategy, medical research, and product development. I use design thinking, medical expertise, and business acumen to help companies develop effective methods to enhance consumer and patient engagement. I making meaning out of signal and use science to answer questions and guide product design. Occasionally, I perform due diligence for venture capitalists. Clients have included:
• Meta Med
• Integrated Plasmonics
• Swan Sleep Solutions
• GoGo Health
• Sano Intelligence
• Immunity Project
• One Medical Group
• Gene Solve
• Sermo (WorldOne)
• Sherpa Ventures
• Factory Zero
• Soma Water
• Thistle Juices
I would look into ResearchKit and finding an academic partner like UCSF or Scripps to work with.
Independent doctors would probably charge hourly or project based.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is why you do not have good knowledge of the industry and how do you get this? Once you have learned about the industry you will find that there are hundreds of glucose meters and heart rate monitor companies. What would make your device different? The next question to ask is what is a niche area that you can dominate? What sensors are currently available for wearables and what is a new way to apply them to generate value? Most importantly you need to ask yourself what problem you want to solve and why. Use the Feynman method: Find the problem first, think really hard, and then come up with a solution.
So the firs thing I wonder about this is not what the price will be, but how will you get mental health providers to integrate the app into their workflow? What is the ROI specifically that would make a company want to buy this? How can you justify the cost with the value provided? Is this something that can be billled for? What is the entire interaction between the patient and the doctor? Is the doctor going to get paid for using this? What is the benefit to the provider for implementing this? Once you understand the perspectives and experiences of every individual who is touching the product then you can start thinking about price.
It was a very productive discussion with Molly.She gave very key insights to help me proceed further.
Molly has been a wonderful asset to the team at Sano. She provided a refreshing perspective on the ability for our technologies to affect positive change in the lives of our customers. Every piece of her work product was organized, detailed, and based on solid clinical research. In her very short time with the company, she has already provided us with extremely actionable clinical insights that are core to our product definition and design. I highly recommend Molly!
Molly is a pleasure to work with for multiple reasons. At a macro level, she has a very clear understanding of how the various moving pieces interact in the healthcare world. And she understands what this means for stakeholders -- starting with the individual/patient. She is also detail-oriented and quite thorough in her approach. Bottom line: she is a tremendous asset for any team.
Molly is a powerful holistic thinker, with profound empathy for customers/users. As Product Manager at MetaMed, she was a voice for customers at the table. She gathered customer feedback and interviews and tailored product development specifically toward customer needs.
She understands the healthcare system and its constraints from the inside out; she truly understands what 'disruptive healthcare innovation' means and how to it can be accomplished. With her proven track record of customer and product development to turn that understanding into solid business outcomes, her eye for good design, and ability to get things done, she's a solid asset to any startup or institution operating in the digital health or biotechnology space.
