The Future of Digital Health in a Trump Presidency, a Fireside Chat
by Rick Kuwahara COO of Paubox
There’s lots of speculation about what will happen to healthcare innovation and technology under the new Trump administration.
How will the repeal of the ACA impact digital health? What is the future of innovation in and around value-based care delivery?
To find the answers, we hosted a panel of experts at 500 Startups in San Francisco to explore how the recent change in administration might impact the industry.
The fireside chat gathered some of the best in healthcare tech thought leadership, including:
- Geoffrey Clapp, health technology entrepreneur and Paubox adviser
- Rebecca Woodcock, Entrepreneur in Residence, 500 Startups and head of digital health track
- Noah Lewis, Managing Director, GE Ventures
- Lan Anh Nguyen, CEO, ManageUP PRM
It was a fantastic discussion with great points made by all panelists. Here are a few clips from the evening, with a handful of notable remarks:
“We thought it would be a pivotal time to get a lay of the land, social leadership positions, on where digital health is heading under a new presidency.” – Hoala Greevy, CEO, Paubox.
“It’s a world of opportunity for you as entrepreneurs…as an entrepreneur, problems didn’t change this month because an executive order got changed.” – Geoffrey Clapp, health technology expert and Paubox adviser.

In the end, one thing all the panelists could agree on was that with any type of change or disruption to the industry, there presents opportunities for entrepreneurs and startups in Digital Health.
