From her years at Novartis, to her time with mindfulness startup, Headspace, Kristin has learned a lot that digital therapeutics startups might find useful as they attempt to bridge the gap between traditional healthcare companies and the growing base of well-informed healthcare consumers. What does Kristin predict will happen in the digital therapeutics space in the next 3-5 years? "Partnerships" might be the most important word in Kristin's new title.
