ANDHealth has appointed its inaugural International Investment Advisory Committee (IIAC), which will provide critical insights and frontline industry experience to the MRFF funded ANDHealth Digital Health Accelerator Fund and associated ANDHealth+ program.

The IIAC comprises internationally recognised investors, clinicians, founders and executives with proven track records in identification and growth within the evidence-based digital health sector.

The committee will be chaired by globally recognised digital health leader Lisa Suennen. Named 2018 Rock Health Digital Health Evangelist of the Year, Suennen has spent more than 30 years in operating and investing roles at the intersection of technology and health, and has been actively engaged with ANDHealth for many years. She heads the Manatt Phelps & Phillips Digital and Technology Practice, and is also a Managing Partner of the Manatt Venture Fund.

Suennen will be supported by: Bronwyn Le Grice, CEO & Managing Director of ANDHealth; Anand Iyer, Chief Strategy Officer, WellDoc; Andrew Murphy, Executive Chairman & Co-Founder, Robotify Labs & Partner, Erisbeg Fund; Aenor Sawyer, Director, University of California Space Health; Director, UCSF Skeletal Health Service; Bill Lucia, Executive Partner, Consonance Capital and HEP Fund (former Chairman and CEO of HMS, acquired by Gainwell 2021 US$3.4B); Drew Schiller, CEO, Validic; Katherine (Kate) Merton, Principal, Hicks Cohen, former SVP Digital Care Delivery, Anthem Inc; and Ken Cahill, CEO, Silvercloud (acquired by Amwell 2021 US$320m).

ANDHealth CEO Bronwyn Le Grice said, “The IIAC is an Australian-first expert advisory committee designed specifically to bring proven commercialisation and growth expertise on a global scale to our Australian SMEs.

“Successfully scaling into international markets is critical for Australian SMEs from both a sustainability and an investability perspective. The ability of us to call on some of the world’s leading digital health professionals to maximise the impact of the investments from the ANDHealth Digital Health Accelerator Fund into the ANDHealth+ program is priceless.”
