PRESS RELEASES Healthcare Artificial Intelligence Software, Hardware, and Services Market to Surpass $34 Billion Worldwide by 2025 Healthcare has undergone a significant transformation over the past several years, moving from an antiquated, paper-based records system to a more efficient and integrated system that often incorporates physician, payer, and patient-generated health data. This explosion of data means there is a strong need and des ire for systems that not only will help extract and organize this information, but will also analyze and even provide insights and recommendations on how best to utilize the data. It is no secret that healthcare is expensive. Controlling and reducing costs is a major driver of many healthcare initiatives, and incorporating artificial intelligence (AI) technology is no exception. Contrary to consumer markets, there is little desire to deploy new technology for technology’s sake; healthcare has many safety and operational issues that prevent the frivolous introduction of technology, which yields little benefit. AI applications generally are designed to address specific, real-world use cases that make the diagnosis, monitoring, and treatment of patients more efficient, accurate, and available to populations around the world. In the context of an industry fueled by these key market drivers, Tractica forecasts that the global market for AI solutions in the healthcare sector will increase from $1 billion in 2017 to more than $34 billion by 2025. This Tractica report focuses on 22 healthcare-focused use cases for artificial intelligence, including an assessment of the market opportunity for AI software, hardware, and services in the healthcare market. The market analysis and forecasts within the study cover industry dynamics in five major world regions and are based on an in-depth assessment of major companies as well as startup-level activity in the healthcare AI space. Revenue forecasts for each use case are segmented by world region, and the study also includes profiles of 22 key industry players.

The Right Way to Grant Equity to Your Employees
The Wealthfront Equity Plan is designed to specifically handle the four most important cases for granting equity to employees. Each year, you create a new option pool that addresses the following needs:

1. New Hires: These grants are used to hire new employees at market levels.

2. Promotion: These grants are intended to reward employees who have been promoted. Promotion grants should bring the recipient up to the level you would hire her at today for her new position.

3. Outstanding Performance: These grants, made once each year, are only intended for your top 10% to 20% of employees who truly distinguished themselves on the basis of amazing accomplishments over the past year. Individual performance grants should represent 50% of what you would hire that person at for their position today. This pool should be reserved for non-executives.

4. Evergreen: These grants, which are appropriate for all employees, start at an employee’s 2½-year anniversary and continue every year thereafter. The idea is you don’t want to wait until the employee’s initial grant has been fully vested to give a new grant because by that time the employee will evaluate new opportunities. Annual evergreen grants should equal 25% of what that employee would receive if she were hired for her same position today. Giving 25% of the market rate for a position each year, rather than a lump sum grant that covers the next four years, will smooth out the vesting process so the employee never reaches a cliff. As I said before, cliffs cause people to raise their heads to consider alternatives and should be avoided at all costs.

DIGITAL HEALTH STARTUPS TO WATCH: The top 5 startups disrupting healthcare within AI, digital therapeutics, health insurance, and genomics Business Insider 20180726
The top 5 startups disrupting healthcare within AI, digital therapeutics, health insurance, and genomics Laurie Beaver Jul. 26, 2018, 6:32 PM Business Insider Intelligence The healthcare industry is facing disruption due to accelerating technological innovation and growing demand for improved delivery of healthcare and lower costs. Tech startups are leading the way by seizing opportunities in the areas of the industry that are most vulnerable to disruption, including genomics, pharmaceuticals, administration, clinical operations, and insurance. Venture funds and businesses are taking notice of these startups' potential. In the US, digital health funding reached $1.6 billion in Q1 2018, according to Rock Health — the largest first quarter on record, surpassing the $1.4 billion in venture funding seen in Q1 2016. These high-potential startups provide a glimpse into the future of the healthcare space and demonstrate how we'll get there. In this report, a compilation of various notes, Business Insider Intelligence will look at the top startups disrupting US healthcare in four key areas: artificial intelligence (AI), digital therapeutics, health insurance, and genomics. Startups in this report were selected based on the funding they've received over the past year, notable investors, the products they offer, and leadership in their functional area.

Aug. 21 - 22 VB Summit: The best in AI. An invite-only executive event. Oct. 22 - 23 Iterative Lean Startup principles are so well understood today that an minimum viable product (MVP) is a prerequisite for institutional venture funding, but few startups and investors have extended these principles to their data and AI strategy. They assume that validating their assumptions about data and AI can be done at a future time with people and skills they will recruit later. But the best AI startups we’ve seen figured out as early as possible whether they were collecting the right data, whether there was a market for the AI models they planned to build, and whether the data was being collected appropriately. So we believe firmly that you must try to validate your data and machine learning strategy before your model reaches the minimal algorithmic performance (MAP) required by early customers. Without that validation — the data equivalent of iterative software beta testing — you may find that the model you spend so much time and money building is less valuable than you hoped.

Healthcare Investments and Exits report, SV

nnovation Wave Drives Robust Activity
In our mid-year Healthcare Investments and Exits report, SVB analyzed the fundraising, investment, M&A and IPO activity of private, venture-backed biopharma, medical device and diagnostic/tools companies.

Halfway through 2018, U.S. healthcare venture fundraising reached $4.5 billion — and is expected to closely match the last year’s record of $9.1 billion. Investments in venture-backed companies are also on pace to surpass last year.

The report highlights include:

We saw 30 biopharma IPOs in the first six months of 2018, compared with 31 for all of 2017.
Biopharma Series A investments are exploding and by mid-year have already exceeded full-year 2017 totals.
Device M&A deals are stable, and the IPO market is favoring neuro-focused companies, with three IPOs in the first half of 2018.
Makers of synthetic biology building blocks — including computational design, CRISPR editing, DNA/RNA synthesis and organism engineering tools — are revolutionizing the subsector, and investments in these companies continue to climb.

Managing human resources is about to become easier Economist 20180331
Managing human resources is about to become easier AI is changing the way firms screen, hire and manage their talent Print edition | Special report Mar 31st 2018 HUMAN RESOURCES (HR) is a poorly named department. It usually has few resources other than overworked staff, clunky technology and piles of employee handbooks. Hassled recruiters have to sort through reams of applications that vastly outnumber the jobs available. For example, Johnson & Johnson (J&J), a consumer-goods company, receives 1.2m applications for 25,000 positions every year. AI-enabled systems can scan applications far more quickly than humans and work out whether candidates are a good fit. Oddly enough, they may also inject more humanity into hiring. According to Athena Karp of HiredScore, a startup that uses algorithms to screen candidates for J&J and others, only around 15-20% of applicants typically hold the right qualifications for a job, but they are rarely told why they were not hired, nor are they pointed to more suitable jobs. Technology is helping “give respect back to candidates”, she says.

The Top 5 AI In Healthcare Startups 20180305
THE TOP 5 AI IN HEALTHCARE STARTUPS 5 MAR, 2018COMPANIESNEWS Artificial Intelligence in healthcare is one of the biggest technological advances in medicine thus far. Healthcare providers are currently experiencing a colossal overload of data; yet, sifting through the all the information necessary on a time budget to make a data-based decision without machine learning is almost impossible. Dr. Mark Michalski, the Executive Director of the MGH and BWH Center for Clinical Science, currently focuses his research on improving clinical practice with machine learning. He says, “Finding ways to take all that deluge of data and turn it into something that is actionable and meaningful for clinicians is what all that data is about. The last ten years have really been about finding ways to generate more data about patients, so we have lots of genomic data. The next 10 years are really about making meaning from that data.” He stresses that he is more excited about the integration of AI into programs already within use, like CTs and MRIs, rather than AI as a standalone product. In terms of investing in AI in healthcare, Cris de Luca, a Medtech Innovator as well as the Global Head of Digital Innovation for Johnson & Johnson Innovation believes that while AI in healthcare is a “top-trending buzz factor,” it is still “under-hyped.” He says, “Very few companies in the world can do real AI and these are ones with access to reams and reams of data.  Entrepreneurs should choose their investors wisely, not only for smart funding but also to increase access to data partnerships and strategic commercialization opportunities.”
