I have spent my life breaking things apart, mixing the pieces up with other things, and creating something totally new from them. This dubious talent often yields delightful results when trying to solve vexing therapeutic challenges in new innovative ways.
Born and raised in Italy, then professionally baked in the US, Gerry Chillè is a unique multi-cultural individual with a polymorphous approach to problem solving and a true out-of-the-box thinker thanks to his extensive creative, technical and strategic background.
Gerry’s early career highlights include launching a media company in NYC that produced TV and radio advertising for major US consumer brands, producing and mixing globally recognized rap music artists, and digital communications and user experience research for the Broadband Media Lab of NYNEX Science & Technology (a division of the famed Bell Labs).
While at NYNEX, he worked on early telemedicine concepts, remote patient care pilots, and systems for acquiring and transmitting high-definition diagnostic images across leading US hospitals and medical centers.
In 2008, he further accelerated his journey toward digital health innovation overseeing the strategy, design, production and launch of the second-ever online patient support community commissioned by a leading global pharmaceutical company.
Following several other digital health projects, Gerry launched Healthware Labs in NYC to advance Healthware’s reach in the US innovation ecosystem and provide an Open Innovation platform for pharma clients to design and launch digital health Proof of Concepts in partnership with startups.
