From allergen detection, tracking digestion and nutrition, to microbiome identification and more, staying in the know about early life are ever-crucial to the growth and development of a child. The application of digital innovation is key in improving the efficiency and efficacy of healthcare, and associated insights for further research and development – but what are the real market demands of these technologies and how do they differ internationally?

Did you know, Singapore is home to 9% of all health tech startups in Asia Pacific, just behind China and India? In 2018, the government announced that it will invest US$13 billion over 5 years, in research and development, of which part of it will go to health care innovation. Besides startups, many multi-national companies have also set up global or regional innovation teams in Singapore to develop new health care solutions.
