Innovation Debate: The Virtual Front Door in Healthcare


Stefan Behrens, PhD
CEO & Co-Founder
Gyant Health

Stefan is a repeat entrepreneur in the digital consumer space. He is passionate about improving patient access to health information and the appropriate care at scale. Empathetic digital patient journeys are the key to making the experience better for patients AND bending the cost curve for health systems.

Prior experience includes running a multiplayer video games company, co-founding a couple of digital-native consumer brands, and almost a decade in strategy consulting driving large-scale transformation programs.

Stefan earned a PhD in information systems and MBA from EBS University, Oestrich-Winkel, Germany.

GYANT helps hospital systems and health plans save costs by guiding patients to the right care setting. GYANT’s chat-based app uses artificial intelligence to take a thorough medical history, which is then presented to a provider. Within minutes, patients receive treatment of low-acuity complaints, home care advice, or a referral to the appropriate facility, keeping patients out of the ER.

Previously, he was Senior Director and Entrepreneur-in-Residence at SRI International. Decoded Health is a spinout from SRI International.
