Catalyst @ Health 2.0 (“Catalyst”) was founded by Indu Subaiya and Matthew Holt in 2010 through organic demand from healthcare leaders interested in unique health technologies. Through the Health 2.0 conference business, Indu and Matthew formed a team to focus on small consulting projects, code-a-thons, and innovation competitions. As demand for digital health innovation grew dramatically, Catalyst’s services evolved to fulfill the consulting needs of some of the largest healthcare institutions around the globe. In 2017, Catalyst was spun-off from Health 2.0’s conference arm to focus on novel and diverse digital health innovation programs.
Catalyst is the industry leader in digital health strategic partnering, hosting competitive innovation "challenge" events, as well as developing and implementing programs for piloting and commercializing novel healthcare technologies. Since 2010, our team has hosted 90+ innovation challenges with $9mm in awards, coordinated over 175 pilot programs to test new technologies, and created connections for more than 1,500 firms via matchmaking events. Catalyst has also organized and hosted 25+ code-a-thons with software engineers and programmers involved in the health technology community.
Catalyst’s consulting services have served many clients with digital health innovation and commercialization across the public and private sectors. Our global network is a community comprised of health information technology and new-media entrepreneurs, software developers, health care provider and payer organizations, pharmaceutical companies, philanthropic foundations, physicians, patients, academics and government representatives. These individuals have engaged with Catalyst by participating in our programs, attending matchmaking sessions, partnering in pilot studies, and partaking in leadership events.
