Anca Petre – About Me

 

“You cannot discover new oceans unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.”

 

Anca Petre is a Pharm.D. and Business double degree candidate specialized in digital health. She is currently working on a thesis around the use of blockchain technology in the health sector.

 

Anca is passionate with meeting new people, contribute to challenging and inspiring projects and learning new things. She is driven by the desire to take part in the ongoing digital revolution in the healthcare industry and participate in building tomorrow’s health system.

 

Anca is also a consultant at 23Consulting. 23Consulting is a company focused on educating and supporting healthcare firms in developing projects using blockchain technology, by connecting them to a network of experts.

 

“I am fascinated with the possibilities that offer blockchain technologies in comparison to the traditional processes in healthcare. It really breaks all the barriers of the conventional way of approaching this sector. The patient finally has an opportunity to become the main actor of the healthcare circuit and the owner of his own data. It is hard for now to understand where this technology will take healthcare but the emulation around it is very challenging. It forces you to think in a different way and I think that this is what I love most about what I do.”

 

Anca publishes her research and analysis as a contributor writer on various platforms such as Intelligent HQ or IMT (Innovate MedTech).

 

She particularly enjoys working in the sector’s startup environment. She collaborated with various digital health companies and worked with blockchain-based fintech startup Humaniq. Anca also organized and participated in various hackathons and conferences to promote innovation in the healthcare sector.

 

In addition, Anca is also the Vice-President of the French National Council for eHealth and the Founder of public speaking and communication association “Speak Up!”.

 

I am available for speaking commitments in various events in French. English, Spanish or Romanian. For more information or requests, contact me at ancapetre@hotmail.fr
