Like Caspar Health, other health organizations can also serve their patients with better services and stay connected with them through an application. They can have their own health application for their patients, allowing them to instantly connect with doctors and get complete healthcare solutions.

Some Takeaways From Disrupt Berlin 2017
1.Blockchain, Blockchain & Blockchain Everywhere
The event “Disrupt Berlin 2017” mainly focused on the buzzword-of-the-moment Blockchain.
What Blockchain is all about? How this technology is going to change different things? However, the answers to all these questions are so many because the use cases for blockchain technology beyond cryptocurrencies are still in their kid shoes.
Blockchain is a foundational technology that has made it easily possible to store value (monetary or virtual) and log transactions in a hard-linked, transparent, distributed record, which is not easily feasible to fake.
Apart from its most visible case behind bitcoin, this leading technology is seeing first apps in the advertising space as a way to trade inventory, flip the business models, and prevent fraud.
Talking about the apps, another big barrier to more mainstream blockchain adoption is UX, which is the kind of broad market acceptance. It is likely to happen when apps emerge that people can make without requiring any deep understanding of the “guts” of the technology.
2.A Successful & Fruitful Disruption Doesn’t Need to be “High Tech”
The Winner of the Startup Battlefield at TechCrunch Disrupt berlin 2017 gives the best alternative solution to an archaic women’s health technology.
“1987 brought us the first cellphone, the boombox, the Apple personal computer and the at-home pregnancy test,” Bethany Edwards, co-Founder and CEO at Lia Diagnostics, said to Startup
Battlefield judges. “It’s been 30 years since 1987 and all of these revolutionary innovations have advanced significantly, except for one: the at-home pregnancy test.”
Lia Diagnostics developed the first-ever flushable pregnancy test, which is both biodegradable and discreet, with 99% of accuracy.
3.Human Creativity Prevail Over AI
At Disrupt Berlin 2017, there was “Off the Record” sessions- moderated questions-and-answers sessions with founders and investors talking about Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning, Cryptocurrencies/Blockchain, Bitcoin, Robotics and Fintech.
Danielle Seymour shared her key takeaway from the session on Robotics. “What was actually quite interesting, was they were arguing [about] whether or not we should be worried about robots, or robots should be worried about humans,” she said. “Whether or not [the creativity we are capable of] is actually a bigger threat than what robots will pose to us.”
