Following the success of the AXA Health Tech & You Awards Launch in October – we are running another event in January to announce our partnership with eHealth Hub and the launch of a new Challenge! eHealth Hub is an EU-funded initiative that provides long-term support to ecosystem stakeholders and addresses key challenges facing European SMEs in the digital health space.

We invite you to join us for an inspiring evening of panel discussions, exhibitions and demonstrations with pioneers and experts in the health tech space, with food, drinks and networking amongst key individuals in the industry.

Dr Mike Short, Chief Scientific Adviser from the Department for International Trade and Sylvie Donnasson from eHealth Hub will lead a discussion on Global Britain and the future of health in Europe. Reema Patel, Programme Manager at the new Ada Lovelace Institute will join our experts from the AXA Health Tech & You Expert Group to share perspectives on ethics, equity, and trust in health tech. Please scroll down for full agenda.

The evening will update everyone on the AXA Health Tech & You Awards, celebrating entrepreneurs who are providing the most valuable, trusted innovations for consumers in the marketplace. Now in its fifth year, the AXA Health Tech & You Awards has created two categories in 2019 to recognize entrepreneurs in both early-stage start-ups and later stage businesses who are changing the way people think about their health while helping to solve the big problems in healthcare:

  • The first Innovation category recognizes pioneers in early-stage start-ups
  • The second Excellence category recognizes entrepreneurs leading later-stage businesses

Our New challenge for 2019 is focusing on mobility and accessibility for older citizens.

These new categories are underpinned by principles embracing diversity, health equality, and social inclusion. Entries will be judged in accordance with how the entrepreneurs have succeeded in making a difference in people’s lives through their innovative approach and attention to creating solutions to address significant unmet consumer needs.

Overall, the 2019 AXA Health Tech & You Awards programme is looking for standalone solutions to help citizens take charge of their health and wellbeing, as well as smart applications that enrich the relationship between people and their careers (whether health professionals, friends or family).

AXA is working with Collider Health and The Bakery, with support from our other partners including Women of WearablesOne HealthTech, and Our Mobile Health to discover exciting and innovative health technology.

AXA Health Tech & You Partnership Launch Event London

At AXA PPP healthcare we’re open-minded about what the future of health and wellbeing looks like. Over 75 years of insurance have taught us that you can prepare for what might happen, but you can never fully predict it.

We can help shape it though and we’re doing this through AXA Health Tech & You. We believe in investing in breakthroughs that could make a difference to our customers’ lives. Disruptive health technology is benefitting everyone. Miniscule computer chips, wearable technology, the ability to share masses of data instantaneously, and the fact that so many people are permanently with a smartphone, all give our customers more control over their health and wellbeing.
