Techweek Highlight Event

Techweek TV: Precision healthcare - how can we be in control

We unravel how the Precision Health sector is helping people take control of their health in this exciting Techweek TV session.

What's it all about?

From personal monitoring devices to genetic profiling, HealthTech is taking leaps and bounds in personalised health care that we can all benefit from. Hear from an Auckland company leading the charge in Precision Healthcare in this Techweek TV session.

We gain rare insight into advanced MedTech processes from Edison Clinic, who combine genetic profiling with world-class medical professionals in a three step process. They also showcase new innovation such as the Oura Ring - the advanced personal monitoring at your fingertips that is available and how it can improve sleep and performance. 

You can drop into this event at any time.

Dr Ula Heywood

Clinical Director, Edison Health

I’m Dr Ula Heywood. Over the last decade, in addition to my work as a Medical Specialist, I have had an ongoing deep interest in health and wellness, particularly the role that nutrition, sleep, exercise and mindfulness play. I avidly read about this and practice it myself as much as possible, especially in the kitchen!

The subjects of epigenetics, nutrigenomics and individualised healthcare programs are fascinating to me. It is definitely the way of the future for medicine.

It is time to proactively invest in building fences at the top of the cliff, rather than reacting with ambulances at the bottom. Edison is the antidote to this, allowing us to re-engineer your health on a cellular level and maximise health longevity.

My goal as the Clinical Director at Edison is to provide clarity around the true path to health, enabling people to maximise their quality of life and to reach their full health potential.

Co-Founder & CEO, Edison Health

Jay Harrison is the Founder and CEO of Edison Health

The famous Thomas Edison quote “The doctor of the future will give no medication, but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” is the inspiration behind our mission here at Edison. It is why we chose our name.

I believe we are on the cusp of a human health revolution.

Progress in the fields of genetics, technology and life-sciences have created a phenomenal opportunity for companies like Edison to shape the future of healthcare. I view this convergence as one of the greatest contributing factors to our success to date.

I feel privileged to be working with a group of amazing people shaping the future of healthcare and I am honoured that our clients have entrusted Edison to guide their personal health aspirations.
