Colombia innovating
the health care system

The Problem

Fragmentation has always been a complex challenge for healthcare systems around the world leading to a lack of continuity of care.
Now more than ever, we need to evolve and Latin America is at the right moments, with a healthcare coverage of almost 100% of the population and an up and coming innovation ecosystem capable of leading the transformation.


Open Innovation Challenge

The 2030 Health Movement created the call where entrepreneurs from the region applied their knowledge to solve the following challenges




How could we help patients and caregivers to navigate the experience, understanding it, simplifying procedures and finding financial support alternatives, increasing the chances that they will have greater continuity in the care and treatment of their illness?
