Healthcare innovations play within a multi-sided market which adds a layer of complexity and difficulty a lot of other industries don’t have. What are some of the unique features of healthcare that innovators have to navigate? How do entrepreneurs balance between enthusiastic optimism and the realism of how the market works? What strategies can you use to beat the odds and maximize your ROI?

On this episode, I’m joined by the founder and CEO Health Innovation Partners, Paulo Machado who shares on his multiple level experience with commercialization and how to decrease the 95% failure rate of healthcare innovation.


3 Things We Learned

  • Healthcare innovators often have tunnel vision on their creation which is a mistake
  • It’s so important to have the ability to pivot
  • The difference between decision making in consumer and healthcare products

A successful healthcare innovation has to work within the massive healthcare system that exists. Innovators tend to oversimplify the problems and facets of healthcare, and come up with specific point solutions as a result. But if you neglect the larger ecosystem, your innovation won’t be good enough, even if it’s really amazing. Remember, healthcare products aren’t a normal good and you don’t just sell to one consumer. You sell to multiple stakeholders, who aren’t always aligned in their goals. Always design your innovation with the whole system in mind.
