Meet the digital health start-up: WARD 24/7

The scientific team behind the health tech start-up WARD 24/7 has already made headlines in Danish media due to their contributions in the COVID-19 situation. Just a few weeks before the pandemic broke out, the early-stage start-up was selected to join the Business Acceleration Academy at BioInnovation Institute to build a company and develop a solid, initial business plan that will help them bring their solution to patients.

The co-founding scientific team consists of CRDO Eske Aasvang from Rigshospitalet, CMO Christian Meyhoff from Bispebjerg Hospital and CTO Helge Sørensen from DTU. The company is led by CEO Betina Langemark, who has a background in strategy from Novo Nordisk and AstraZeneca.

We talked to her about the company’s solution: intelligent surveillance of hospitalized patients in the general ward.
