However, the maturity level of corporates varies greatly, which dramatically impacts the success of the digitisation process in these organisations. During this fireside chat, industry veterans François Cadiou and Julien de Salaberry will share about the latest successes observed in Digital Health and how the stakeholders involved, from the corporates to the startups, manage to make it a success.

Speaker’s Profile:
François Cadiou, Founder & CEO, Healint

François Cadiou is the CEO and Founder of Healint, a health tech company that helps the one billion people who suffer from migraine and other neurological conditions. Healint is the developer of the world's largest migraine tracking and research platform, Migraine Buddy.

Before founding Healint in 2013, François was a senior technology and operations executive for the global biopharmaceutical giant Sanofi. His roles encompassed the development of key strategies and programs to improve the efficiency of drug development and of clinical trials for operations in Japan and in Europe. Cadiou later consulted for several international MedTech firms and innovative technology start-up companies.

His inspiration for Healint arose out of a medical emergency when his father suffered a sudden stroke. François and his team realized there were numerous uses for technology that would allow people to monitor behaviour, stress and other factors that could potentially predict the onset of a medical episode. This could be for stroke or a complex condition like migraine.

In 2014, François collaborated with top scientists and researchers and launched Migraine Buddy, which is now the top migraine tracking platform in the world with more than one million users. People use the Migraine Buddy app to track and record their migraine symptoms and condition. The patient reported outcomes generated via the platform helps patients understand their condition, and get the best possible diagnosis and treatment, and insights for research and clinical trials.

Born and raised in France, François has always been a natural problem solver and computer enthusiast. Time spent in the health care clinic where his mother worked inspired an interest in health care and the potential to find efficient solutions through technology to major health care challenges.

François received his MBA from Insead and a Master’s Degree in Science from ESSCA in Angers, France, and currently resides in Singapore with his wife and daughter.
