Music as medicine? Video games as treatment modalities? These are the kinds of things that inspire me about digital health and the future of healthcare.
A twenty+ year veteran of consulting and digital marketing, Kristin’s experience has had a consistent focus on healthcare, technology and the intersection of the two.
She is a strategic and innovative thinker, who has held leadership roles in strategy/planning and client engagement at various digital firms with numerous Fortune 100 pharmaceutical and technology clients.
After launching her own digital shop and rising through the ranks on the agency side, Kristin jumped to the client side and joined the newly formed unit at Novartis called Digital Medicines in 2015. In that role, she looked to make transversal connections from other industries and find diverse partners from all corners of the healthcare ecosystem and beyond to help accelerate the experimentation and adoption of new digital health solutions to improve the lives of patients.
Headspace was one such solution she felt could have significant impact across a variety of disease states, and joined the team there to integrate mindfulness/meditation into healthcare.
Kristin is now the Global Head of Digital Health Partnerships at Healthware Group working to help advance the growing field of digital health and digital therapeutics by forging meaningful connections between start-ups, biopharma, tech firms and beyond.
