Full bio

Accomplished health care executive with passion and expertise about product-service systems, who moved in 2015 from Milan, Italy, to San Francisco Bay Area. I founded “eXoMe Venture Service LLC."  

Currently part of the team of Amicomed with the responsibility of Business Development. 

He has almost 20 years of experience in the innovative healthcare services spanning start-ups, research and clinical medicine, in Italy and EU. Pioneered of telemedicine and digital health, and founder of Telbios in 1996 that is currently serving tens of thousands of chronic patients. He orchestrates strategic thinking, business model design, service design to define and coordinate the realization of technology platforms to establish new relationships among the person and her/his health and well-being status and physicians.

The daily interactions with patients, clinicians and researchers of an important scientific institution in Milan, San Raffaele Hospital, allowed him and his team, over the years, to bring to market multiple products and services overall Italy in a no pre-existing market segment. He also established important strategic partnerships with Ieading industries like Telecom Italia and Qualcomm Life.

Recently he has been responsible for the end-to-end service design in the largest European initiative of Population Management – CReG program (proposal preparation, bidding phase, implementation and deployment phases) that started in 2012 and operating in Lombardia. The CReG (Chronic Related Group) involves more than 100,000.00 chronic patients and more than 500 Primary Care Physicians. It is a clinical and technological design care program which implements a new business model giving the financial responsibility to the PCPs. The services provided are care coordination, remote patient monitoring, and patient education. Over the years there has been a significant reduction in hospitalization (i.e. for CHF patients) and an overall increase of patients' compliance with the care plan and medication.

Last September he moved to the Bay Area where there is a unique intersection of healthcare technology innovations, consumer, and digital trends, scientific and financial resources. He started a collaboration as mentor at the Biodesign Institute at Stanford University at the class 'Biodesign for mobile health', and currently working with health tech startups as mentor, advisor, product-market fit, on strategy and funding, and corporates to define digital health strategies.
