Sathya, welcome onboard the team as our Digital Health Today Ambassador!

    1. Tell us a bit more about yourself, your background and what you’re doing now.

      I am a first-generation Singaporean, with roots from Chennai, India. Trained as a biomedical engineer, I have worked across different projects and functions in healthcare from government to medical devices and pharmaceuticals. Currently, I am helping advise pharmaceutical companies in the Asia Pacific on their digital transformation strategies and engagement activities at Ogilvy Consulting. Along with this, I have a full-time job as a mom to an energetic 1.5-year-old son! 🙂

    2. How did you get involved with digital health?

      During my MBA at London Business School, I was part of the Healthcare Club, helping to organize the HealthTech Challenge. This helped me to get a better understanding of the new digital health technologies that companies were trying to build and commercialize. Post MBA, I worked in Eli Lilly where I also helped to manage some of the digital marketing initiatives as part of diabetes brand management. Then, I got the opportunity to work in an exciting start-up in the migraine space, called Healint to do project management. Currently, I am helping to lead digital transformation projects with pharmaceutical companies at Ogilvy Consulting.

    3. Tell us about where you come from and some of the health and technology innovation that’s happening there.

      Singapore is a hotbed for new innovation. There are various start-ups looking at amazing digital technologies from prediction to AI to chatbots. Singapore is also a nice gateway to Asia-Pacific, with a 7-hour radius to the rest of countries.

    4. What are some of your top interests and what should people contact you about?

      Interests – Quick workouts, running; Happy to share about my work and living experiences in Asia.
