Event Introduction


The convergence of mobile technology with an evolving healthcare system drives the market for mobile health. Indeed, the revenues grow from $230 million in 2010 to $392 million in 2015, according to research from Frost & Sullivan.

It has been noted that this market is still in the very early stages facing challenges for developers, namely new U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations. However, the upside to FDA involvement in the market could be to ferret out trivial health apps that make unwarranted medical claims, and other challenges are security and privacy concerns. 

HYSTA Digital Health SIG and SVCwireless mHealth have invited experts to present their solutions and inside and to discuss the challenges in making the health care system more cost effective and efficient.

Before Morgan Lewis, he served as General Counsel and Senior Vice President of Strategy of Health Hero Network. Earlier in his career, he was Chief IP Officer of OpenTV and its controlling shareholder, Dutch-based MIH. When Mr. Opperman joined OpenTV, he became the first ever chief IP officer in any publicly traded company. Select career highlights include developing OpenTV's well-publicized patent strategy to protect its "one-click shopping" innovations, which pre-date's by more than three years. He also conducted the IP due diligence for MIH's investment into Chinese Internet giant, Tencent and was the architect of their initial IP strategy. At Health Hero Mr. Opperman managed and developed a patent portfolio rated by a 2003 MIT study as one of the top 15 most cited IT patent portfolios.

Bill Evans 

Bill Evans is principal and founder (1992) of Bridge Design, a medical product development consulting firm in San Francisco. Bridge works on a wide variety of medical devices as well as consumer pharmaceutical, surgical, and diagnostic products. Bridge has been designing UIs for medical devices for 15 years and recently has been working on cloud based medical apps too. An active design researcher, Mr. Evans's involvement in projects focuses on the early stages of innovation and design strategy, and he travels extensively to interact or observe healthcare professionals and patients. His client experience is about half venture capital-backed medical device companies and half Fortune 1000 companies. He writes extensively on design and design management and is a frequent speaker at medical device conferences. He has served on MD&DI's Editorial Advisory Board since 2003. Raised in London as the son of a chemist and biologist that could quote Shakespeare as easily as Bessemer and Darwin, Mr. Evans is a true interdisciplinarian. Apart from his two masters degrees-one in design engineering (DIC Imperial College, London) and one in industrial design, (MDes Royal College of Art, London), his undergraduate studies included mechanical and electrical engineering, basic sciences, and social sciences. He has 25 years of product development experience, including four years as vice president at Lunar Design and five years as vice president of design at a small British domestic appliance maker. He is an aficionado of latin/jazz percussion, upright bass, and guitar, and he enjoys snowboarding and mountain biking with his two sons. When he was a young recent graduate, he worked for a year teaching mentally handicapped young adults how to farm, pacing himself about one week ahead of his students in terms of learning the skills. As a result of this brief farming experience, he is probably the only medical designer in Silicon Valley who can hand-milk a goat.

As the world marches unavoidably toward globalization, the impact of China's vast and rapidly growing economy is felt in all aspects of business and investment. HYSTA (Hua Yuan Science and Technology Association) is excited to be a part of this historic transformation and we are proud to represent China. Our aim is to promote business, cultural exchange and to foster beneficial U.S. - China business relationships. We also endeavor to promote entrepreneurship and provide coaching and support for Chinese professionals in the Silicon Valley. We hope to contribute toward the success of a new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs and business leaders in the global economy.

HYSTA was established in 1999 by a group of Chinese entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley. From humble beginning as foreign students with almost no assets or connections, they became prominent business leaders in the Silicon Valley. They created HYSTA with the hope to share their experiences and knowledge with young Chinese professionals entering the business world. HYSTA, in Chinese, means both Chinese origin and resources for the Chinese.

Today, HYSTA is the leading Chinese professional organization in the Silicon Valley. It has become a trusted network for both young talents, those who have accumulated years of wisdom and a platform to exchange knowledge between the two. HYSTA has also become a valuable partner for a wide range of businesses interested in China and in accessing the rich and vibrant Chinese business community in the Silicon Valley.
