Launching Evolve Health Media
We are building with our partners a separate brand dedicated to digital marketing, branding, and community building for healthcare brands and businesses.
Healthcare and health-tech brands need more support when it comes to strategic digital marketing, branding, communications and community building—this is the need we are working to meet in the healthcare ecosystem.
We are incredibly excited about the many ambitious healthcare brands we will work with to bring their visions to fruition.
Healthcare and health-tech brands, especially startups and solopreneurs, must understand how to marry their brand identities with their business strategies and tech stacks.

Healthcare Leadership & Innovation
"'This Is Just The Start' - The Heart Nurses Breaking Down Professional Boundaries"
"A medical procedure, once the preserve of experienced doctors, in which a tube is inserted through the wrist and onto the heart, has been performed by nurses at St Bartholomew's Hospital for the very first time."
"Electricity Can Heal Even The Worst Kind Of Wounds Three Times Faster, New Study Finds"
"Medical conditions like diabetes, cancer, disturbed blood circulation, and spinal injuries can sometimes impair our body's natural ability to heal wounds. Patients who live with such conditions often experience wounds that don't heal. These unrepaired chronic wounds become a source of infection and sometimes even lead to amputations, making patients' lives very difficult. In their latest study, the researchers claim to heal chronic wounds three times faster using electric current."
"These Drugs Are So Futuristic That Doctors Need New Training"
Drugs of the future will need new knowledge to handle. And this is one significant challenge of healthcare innovations—not having enough professionals evolving with the trends.
"A Knee Replacement That Talks to Your Doctor? It's Just the Beginning"
"As a 'smart knee' that transmits data rolls out, medical specialists and engineers predict sensors will be added to artificial hips, shoulders and spinal implants."
Smart implants that can communicate with your healthcare provider and other smart devices. Interesting.
In the future, implants, prostheses and artificial body parts will be able to send vital physiological information/data about how they are doing to healthcare providers.
The brain isn't connected to these implants, so it doesn't know how they are faring. That's quite thoughtful. Kind science people.

"We always believe that in difficult times like these, this is when great companies continue to be born." - Lynne Chou O'Keefe, founder and managing partner at Define Ventures.

Preparing For AI-Driven Medicine: 6 Crucial Questions For Tomorrow's Doctors

The rapid advancements in AI have brought about a major paradigm shift. This article will discuss some critical questions that medical professionals must be able to answer in order to navigate the AI revolution successfully."
How AI and Facial Recognition Could Spot Stroke and Other Diseases
"Patients at Johns Hopkins Hospital who are suspected of having a stroke might get an unusual request from physicians: Can we film your face? The doctors' goal is to identify stroke patients by facial characteristics instead of waiting for brain scans or blood tests, helping speed both treatment and recovery."
The 5 Levels Of Automation In Medicine
How will humans collaborate with AI in the future to provide healthcare? This article from the Medical Futurist explains the levels of human-AI collaborations we will likely experience in healthcare in the future.
India Believes In Democratised Access To All Digital Health Solutions
"India believes in democratised access to all digital health solutions, promoting a culture of Global Public Goods. - Indian's Minister of Health."
India is taking a bold step forward in the world of digital health. With sustained efforts like this, the country can become one of the most envied and respected countries in the future of digital health and health tech.
Confronting Your Fears in Virtual Reality Therapy
"Virtual reality can help people see their favourite band perform, hang out with friends or relax on a beach without leaving home. It is also pushing some people to speak in front of crowds or revisit war zones, processing fears or traumatic memories for the sake of their health."
Virtual reality isn't all about games, fun, entertainment and the "Metaverse hyper-hype."
Scientists are already exploring the healthcare benefits of VR in helping victims of trauma or those with phobias that affect their lives.
They are taking exposure therapy to a whole new level with the help of virtual reality.
Healthcare and Science
"Bats Shrug Off Viruses and Rarely Get Cancer. We're Trying to Learn From Them"
Does this remind you of anything? Anything from Hollywood? Maybe vampires that don't die or grow old, or a scientist with an incurable blood disease injecting himself with bat blood, turning him into an invincible hero? Well, if you don't do comics or sci-fi, you might never have heard of Mobius.
Find out how scientists are exploring the "bat world" to discover if they can learn something about our nocturnal friends that might help humanity fight against deadly viruses and cancer and maybe make us immortal. Who knows.
"Beyond Asthma: Designing Inhaled Drugs to Fight More Diseases"
"Treatments for asthma have long been delivered through the airways. Now researchers are developing inhalable therapies to target a wider range of ailments from cancer to diabetes."
In the future, we might see the practical use of nanotechnology in healthcare.
Smart drugs that have tiny brains. They know where to go and know how to avoid healthy cells. Isn't that amazing?
Imagine how this new technology will help us advance in the fight against cancer. We once imagined stuff like these, but now, these things are beginning to unravel right before our eyes. And it's so exciting!
