Tales From the Trenches: Deborah Kilpatrick, CEO of Evidation Health

Wed, December 6, 2017 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM

Exercise. Sleep. Social activity. We know that health is influenced by behavior. And yet companies across the healthcare industry struggle to quantify how a person’s behavior in the real world affects clinical and economic outcomes.

Deborah Kilpatrick, CEO of Evidation Health, is in the business of real world information.

Evidation Health taps into connected devices to capture behavioral data outside of the clinic. But the startup’s true value is in its ability to turn this data into actionable and predictive information.

“Data is just a bunch of numbers,” Deborah said during a recent interview. “Information is how you make a meaningful interpretation around an endpoint of interest.”

The behavioral information generated by Evidation Health’s Real Life Study Platform helps payers, providers, pharmaceutical, and digital health companies generate evidence for digital and traditional interventions, enable value-based pricing, and predict future health outcomes.

Under Deborah’s leadership, the startup has raised $31M, and has ongoing collaborations to better understand how behaviors affect pediatric asthma, sleep apnea, neurological conditions, chronic disease, and more.

Deborah will join MATTER for the next Tales From the Trenches to discuss how Evidation Health has upended the conventional approach to measuring the effect of health interventions and predicting patient outcomes.
