Breaking Health, Episode #155


When Bill Taranto pitched the Global Health Innovation (GHI) Fund, he envisioned an independent venture that mimicked a private firm but maintained the backing and power of a big health company. The Fund's partnership with Merck allows them to make groundbreaking investments in the digital health space. Following what is often known as "ecosystem investing," the GHI Fund matches two or more companies, each solving a portion of a healthcare problem, to solve the issue effectively and thoroughly. In addition, GHI maintains a strong focus on the future of healthcare, including patient identification and aggregation as well as data security, integration, analytics, and informatics. Boasting a success rate of over 95%, Bill talks about GHI's mission to scale companies using an integrated approach, data science, and revolutionary technology.
