Healthcare is a $3+ trillion dollar market in need of fundamental transformation. Advances in technology, communications, and collaboration industries have created an opportunity to drive greater value in the healthcare economy. Unfortunately, as a segment, healthcare has historically been among the slowest adopters of these innovations. As a result, healthcare has yet to realize the technology-enabled productivity gains that numerous other sectors have achieved.
G5 Partners was formed to address that opportunity and catalyze healthcare market transformation. Our focus is at the system level — creating foundational solutions that scale, and leveraging scale to transform the entire industry. We seek to collaboratively re-architect the healthcare economy so that it not only integrates state-of-the-art medical insights and technology but also is equipped by the enterprise, consumer, mobile, and technology industries to readily incorporate future innovations and business models.
Our approach is to create purposeful disruption that moves the healthcare industry forward. We take great ideas aimed at the most important problems, bring interdisciplinary solutions-design expertise to bear, secure the requisite capital sources, and recruit commercialization partners. The result is solutions of scale that have a profitable market, make a significant impact, and deliver great benefit to providers, physicians and individuals alike.
Headquartered in Silicon Valley, G5P currently works with the American Medical Association (AMA) to: 1) develop problem sets that have the potential to provide major strategic impact and/or financial return; 2) recommend and implement potential new business ventures or other partnering opportunities; and 3) provide ideas and thinking on how the AMA might best institutionalize efforts around internal and external innovation.
Other G5P projects include collaborations with Arrowhead Research Corporation and numerous leading not for profit institutions. For Arrowhead (NASDAQ:ARWR), G5P provides strategy and corporate development services to ensure externally sourced innovation efforts align with the company’s business goals of maintaining market leadership and competitive advantage while mitigating technical and commercial risk.
