New Zealand-based digital health company, The Clinician, has been named as one of five winners in Medtronic's APAC Innovation Challenge, out of 323 companies.

Medtronic, the world's largest medical technology and device company, launched the APAC Innovation Challenge under the Medtronic Open Innovation Platform, which aims to build capabilities and accelerate innovations to improve access to healthcare with market-centric solutions. The key themes of the challenge, which called for the best innovative ideas from across APAC to address real world healthcare needs, included:

Out of 323 entries across 46 different countries, the 5 winning healthcare companies were announced at Medtronic's Innovation Conference in Singapore on March 16, which was held in parallel with the final pitch for the 10 finalist companies. As a result of the win, The Clinician has secured a potential collaboration with Medtronic valued up to US$200,000 for a pilot in APAC.

Tamaryn Hankinson, CCO and Co-Founder of The Clinician, said: “It is very exciting for our company and digital health platform to be recognised as a winner of the Medtronic APAC Innovation Challenge, especially given the number and quality of companies that entered”
