“You have 30,000 women diagnosed with triple negative cancer every year in the US. Triple negative cancer is defined by what it isn’t and all we have to treat these cancers really is chemotherapy. There are no targeted treatments that women of color with this disease have today. With everything we know about the human genome – that cure is within our grasp – it’s not just leaving it to the scientists – it’s really bringing a community of women- multicultural women – to help us solve this very big problem. -Lisa Kennedy
“Cancer is a leading cause of death in the world and we envision a world where this is no longer a deadly disease, rather one that can be managed, slowed and even stopped in its tracks…that day can’t come soon enough. We want to reinvent the patient experience as we know it. By working together with smart partners, bringing the best ideas to market and working with patients and doctors, we can transform this disease. – Lisa Kennedy, Rethinking the patient journey in breast cancer.

Improving health outcomes in Cincinnati required the collaboration of 5 employers, 3 insurers, 3 local agencies, 3 national agencies, 5 hospitals, thousands of doctors and nurses and most importantly the 2.2 million health consumers living in the city. Only with this collaboration could advanced payment innovations, IT, quality improvements, patient center medical homes and consumer engagement tools really work to improve health.
“It shouldn’t be a secret but it isn’t widely known that traditional financing for life science start-ups like venture funding has significantly decreased. If we don’t find new ways to fund innovations, we could lose a generation of new treatments. -Lisa Kennedy
“One of the biggest things we’ll see in 2050 is a Digital environmental bio superconvergence: everything will have a digital heart and we will become the ‘4th Screen’. We see the seeds of this technology tethered to start-ups today. -Lisa Kennedy
