Accelerating radical breakthroughs in healthcare
The COVID-19 Pandemic highlighted the glaring reality of what we all knew but conveniently ignored — that our healthcare systems are not resilient.
All aspects of the health care value chain are now being re-evaluated from patient experience to payer reimbursement to data ownership.
What we all can agree on is that complacency is no longer an option. The titanic forces of increasing costs, an aging global population, shortage of healthcare workers, the rise of non-communicable diseases and the inequalities in access to healthcare, combined with the cracks illuminated by the Pandemic, have created the perfect storm, or in our view, the perfect opportunity for action.
INTRODUCING XPRIZE HEALTH & PANDEMIC ALLIANCE — An extension of our existing Pandemic Alliance, this expanded global coalition of businesses, bilateral organizations, government agencies, academic institutions, nonprofits, startups, and foundations will be dedicated to accelerating radical breakthroughs in healthcare, making our health system more resilient and preventing the next pandemic.
Utilizing the proven XPRIZE Alliances model, the Health & Pandemic Alliance will identify gaps, focus attention on key issues, and catalyze solutions by sharing resources and knowledge, and crowdsourcing innovation.
